"It's wonderful to be early," says Cheryl Hecht, RN, MSN, manager of nursing recruitment at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, PA. "I've had nurses arrive as early as 45 minutes before the interview because they were unsure of the directions; this shows a real desire for the position."Following the initial interview with the recruiter, you may meet with several different managers, so arriving late affects everyone's schedule and upsets the tone of your interview.Arriving early also allows time to collect your thoughts and observe some of the dynamics of the facility.
4. Come Prepared
...
"The resume should focus on the position you're seeking," Hecht says."Concentrate on the skill set required for that position."If the position is for a QI analyst, or a research or case manager position, you should highlight your computer skills."
"Bring an extra copy or two, especially if you've e-mailed your resume, because an e-mail version never looks as good," she continues.Hecht prefers a resume of one to two pages - a shortened version that gives a brief description of your progressive experience in related positions.Pastel colors are acceptable, and the paper should be of good quality.Avoid gimmicks like designs or graphics."The resume should be tasteful, formal, and professional."
Along with your resume, you should always send a cover letter, addressed to the appropriate recruiter, stating which position you are applying for.
...
"If you're especially proud of a particular patient experience, offer that example," suggests Hecht.
8. Bring Questions
During the interview, you will have an opportunity to ask questions, so be prepared.
...
"Follow up is very important and extremely appropriate," says Hecht."An acknowledgement note to the nurse manager and the nurse recruiter is good.It's also smart to follow up with a phone call to see if the references were received."A slow response for references, she adds, can delay a job offer.When you call, be prepared to offer additional references if there's a delay.
Hecht sums up what all recruiters look for: "a nurse candidate that brings past experiences and can articulate how he or she would successfully fit the position and the facility."So, do your homework, and you can create that winning image - the image of a caring professional who prepares for the interview, recognizes the mission of the facility, and gets the job.
