J. Camille’s Answer

I have that no matter the job, I research job duties, I look up information on the organization, then think of ways my skills can line up with the job duties. I’m prepared for many job interview questions like: what would you consider to be one of your weaknesses in your work? I keep this vague.

Jarred’s Answer

For any job interview, look up information on the STAR Interview Method. It stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result. It's a tool that some companies expect for answers during the interview process. Practicing this before your interview can be beneficial to setting yourself apart from other candidates.

Erin’s Answer

A lot of companies usually start with “tell me about yourself,” or “what made you choose this position.” They will ask about strengths/weaknesses, experience inside and outside of healthcare, and what you enjoy doing outside of work in terms of a work-life balance. They will also ask situational questions about things like teamwork, prioritization, conflict, or cultural competence. Prepare yourself to gear your answers to the job you’re interviewing for.
