MASC Medical Recruitment Firm is a healthcare job agency that is specifically designed to match each client, based on needs and qualifications, to his or her ideal job. We assist our clients in every step of the hiring process, including the interview process.
The interview process can be stressful, especially if you’re not properly prepared. Our interview tips will assist you in having a successful interview with a potential healthcare employer.
Preparation is Crucial
When you go into an interview prepared, you show the potential employer initiative as well as interest in the job for which you are interviewing. During preparation, research the organization beforehand by reaching out to your healthcare job agency. Typically, they have strong ties with the employer due to prior business and can therefore provide great insight about the company.
What to Bring to your Interview
What you bring to your interview also shows how prepared you are. Always bring the following with you to an interview: resume or curriculum vitae, professional credentials and a list of references.
At MASC Medical Recruitment Firm, we require you to upload your resume or curriculum vitae. However, having hard copies of your credentials to hand to the interviewer shows preparedness and enthusiasm for the open position.
Expect the Unexpected
No two interviews are ever the same. Realize that each company has their own interviewing style. You may have to endure a one-on-one, multiple interviews, one right after another or a panel interview. Whatever the case may be, be prepared for any interview scenario. As a well-established healthcare job agency, we have seen interviewees shine in all interview formats if they have prepared beforehand.
Research the most commonly asked interview questions and practice your answers. You will not only feel more comfortable but also sound more eloquent as well. Prepare for questions that are job-specific.
First Impressions Count
An impression isn’t solely based on your interview performance but also on your appearance, mannerisms, body language and communication style.
- When deciding what to wear to the interview, choose clothing as if you were already working there. Remember that it’s better to dress more formal rather than too casual. Also, keep make up, jewelry and any fragrances to a minimum.
- Your punctuality will demonstrate your interest in this interview, and ultimately how you’ll approach the job if you are hired. Arrive at least 10 minutes early to your interview.
- Be respectful of everyone you encounter and treat them kindly. Good manners may hold some weight when deciding whether you should be hired.
- During the interview, exhibit interest in the position you’re interviewing for. This can be as easy as expressing a positive attitude, keeping good posture, making good eye contact, avoiding nervous behavior and offering a firm handshake. A rapport with the interviewer will set a good tone for the rest of the interview.
- Prepare a list of questions for the interviewer, which will also demonstrate your interest in the position and in the company.
- A first impression doesn’t just end at the interview. After the interview, send a thank-you note (or email). In the note, thank them for the opportunity to interview, summarize your main selling points and let the interviewer know that you’re still interested in the employment opportunity.
