To succeed in the healthcare services industry, you should have a substantial level of compassion for your patients or customers. Talk to the interviewer about the compassionate qualities that you possess. How would you rate your level of empathy for others?

- Warm-hearted

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I understand that compassion is one of the top qualities that I need to bring to the workplace, being in the healthcare services profession. I consider myself a very compassionate individual. I am warm-hearted, responsive to my patients' needs, and always empathetic."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Yes, I most certainly consider myself a compassionate person. I take the opportunity to understand and help others whenever possible. While attending university, I spent a lot of time volunteering at a local hospice - not only for the added experience but also to give back to others. I look forward to continuing this level of compassionate care with your organization."
Anonymous Answer
"Compassion, to me, is so much more. There at first is sympathy where you care about someone else's situation, then empathy, where you feel their suffering/pain and compassion is the point in which you want to relieve or improve their situation. I think in a way every nurse whether working in IT or clinical has all of this. I know that working in IT hasn't changed that. I know that I not only care about patients but the end users for whom I am working. Their usability of the product we deliver and how that affects them and the patients they care for is important. It is important I think to understand and want to alleviate their frustrations and work to improve their workflows if needed."
Rachelle's Answer
Incredible response. Very impressive.

At Lehigh Valley Hospital we seek to hire individuals who display a keen interest in the healthcare arena. Would you consider yourself dedicated to a career in healthcare services?
Assure the interviewer of your dedication to a lucrative career in the healthcare services industry. The hiring manager would like to know that this position fits into your long-term plan and that, if hired, you would stay with Lehigh Valley Hospital Inc. as long as possible.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I dedicated my entire career to the healthcare services field. I find it incredibly rewarding and interesting because I get to help others, and every day brings new challenges! One of the reasons I applied for this role with Lehigh Valley Hospital Inc. is because I can see a long-term fit here. I plan to work in the healthcare segment for my entire career."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I know this career can take a toll on personal life, and I understand that while it can be more-or-less sustainable, it's more than just a job for me. So far, I have dedicated my entire adult life to this career. I have shadowed numerous professionals and have worked in multiple clinics. I know this is the right career for me."
Anonymous Answer
"My entire career has focused on patient care, and now both patient care in the EHR as well as my end users. My end users are the front lines for those patients. So I make sure they can perform their job with ease and proficiency in documentation. The less time they spend in the system is more time spent with the patient. It is not a job to me but a career."
Rachelle's Answer
Your response is excellent, and your dedication shines through!

3.
In the healthcare services industry there are many emotions in a day. Have your emotions ever been in the way of your productivity?
The interviewer wants to know if you consider yourself to be an emotionally driven person. Talk to the interviewer about your emotions and if they have ever affected your productivity at work.

Keep in mind - almost everyone is an emotional creature to some degree, but there are other ways that you can describe yourself that have a more positive connotation. If you are passionate, you could choose to refer to yourself as:

- Expressive
- Communicative
- Open
- Unreserved

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Everyone is emotional to a certain degree, and I would consider myself kind-hearted and open. A career in healthcare can be emotional at times; however, I choose to focus on the positives. For instance, - if we are close to losing a patient, I will focus on positive memories rather than the illness. This mindset has consistently allowed me to continue with a productive shift, no matter the emotions that come my way. "
Rachelle's Answer #2
"This is a great question. I think the right answer is, 'of course, but not for long'! We've all had those severe cases. A child dies, or you have to give someone a cancer diagnosis. It's professional to take a few minutes after an encounter like that and let those emotions come and go. I cope with these emotions by telling myself that it's not my story, its the patient's story. I think it's okay to be moved by someone else's experience, but I don't need to make it mine."
Anonymous Answer
"Humans are emotional creatures, but my emotions have never gotten in the way. For me they drive me to succeed. I like to compose those emotions in a productive, communicative way to be beneficial to the project. So if I am passionate about something, I will see it through to the end and make sure the outcome exceeds the end users' expectations."
Rachelle's Answer
Perfection! Your answer holds a lot of exceptional insight.

Walk the interviewer through your formal post-secondary education as well as any on the job training. Talk about your most positive take-away's from your post-secondary experience and be sure to tie in how that experience will help you succeed in this position.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have a nursing degree as well as additional on the job training within clinical research. I feel that my nursing education opened up many potential industry-related avenues for me. I graduated top of my class and completed a valuable internship with 'XYZ Health Services.' All of these experiences have helped prepare me for success in this role with Lehigh Valley Hospital Inc.."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I did my undergraduate in chemistry and medical school at St. George's University. I loved surgery, so my electives were in general surgery, trauma epidemiology, and orthopedics. I'm happy to be moving on to more responsibility as a resident. I have had some amazing mentors, and I found that I could perform with some different teaching styles."

"I am happy to hear that Lehigh Valley Hospital Inc. values long-term relationships. This fact is a bonus for me, and it's one of the reasons I chose to work in the medical field.

Anonymous Answer
"Being a nurse by nature, you learn and adapt to being a strong, active listener, being mindful of your actions, following up and being on time, and mutual respect for your customers as well as co-workers. You will usually hear me call our subject matter experts "MY SME's/End Users." If you were to ask them, I am "Their Analyst." I have earned my end users' respect and have developed a professional relationship with all. I have walked into a room with angry OB's and walked out with life-long OB physician friends with a great working relationship that worked to improve our system for our end users."
