    Tell me about yourself and the type of person we'd be looking to hire at Kaiser Permanente.

      How to Answer

      Take a few minutes to tell the interviewer a few things about yourself. You can begin with your recent education, family life, volunteer work, or talk about your travels. Bring up anything that is interesting and highlights your ability to be a responsible, reliable, and bright individual on the Kaiser Permanente team.

      Ryan's Answer

      "A bit about me - I love to travel, read, and conduct research. I am a recent grad from Columbia University and have spent the past 12 months traveling the world. It was the best experience that I could have given myself as I was able to learn so much from seeing how the rest of the world lives. I returned to the US just last month and had been actively looking for work the past couple of weeks. I am looking forward to getting into the routine of a career again."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I am an avid marathon runner and have traveled to 10 countries in the last eight years to compete in a variety of races. I am a competitive individual and enjoy keeping fit. Being newer to my career in healthcare, my biggest goal as of late has been to take as many related courses and workshops as possible. I am eager to get a great start on my career."

      Ryan's Answer

      "From a young age, I was raised around a farm and animals are a huge part of my life. My spouse and I are a foster home for abandoned dogs and we love this aspect of our lives. We also raise chickens and goats and have a couple of horses as well. Outside of our animals, my family loves to camp around the region and we do so on many weekends each year."

      "In 2006 I started working at Giant Eagle pharmacy as an OTC associate. I also help the pharmacist with anything they needed from translating to ringing up customers. At the same time, I was going to school to become a tech and got a job at a Wal-Mart pharmacy as a tech in 2010, and I have been working there since."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Your work history sounds strong, and it seems as though you are very loyal to your work. If you can add in a little bit more about your education, that would round out your answer nicely.

      You sound energetic and positive! There are other ways you could expand on this answer as well, if given the time. For instance, you could chat about any volunteer work or post-secondary experiences.
