Rachelle's Answer #1
"Yes, I do have experience working with KidMed programs. I used to work in a local health unit and was responsible for well-child screenings and for providing immunizations. The fact that Company ABC offers well-child care is one of the things that attracted me to your facility."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Until now, I have only worked pediatric critical care. Knowing that Company ABC offers well-child care is one of the things that attracted me to your facility. I realize I may have to have some training to work in the well-child area and am willing to participate in whatever training is necessary."
2.
Here at Company ABC we want to go the extra mile to help make hospital stays as comfortable as possible for children. Do you have any ideas of ways that could make a patient's stay more pleasant or comfortable?
Being sick and/or hospitalized can be a frightening experience, especially for children. Company ABC realizes that anxiety can impede treatment and healing times and seeks to find team members who are willing to put forth the necessary effort to make children feel as comfortable as possible. If you have any ideas to help create this kind of atmosphere, share it.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I think it is such a great thing that Company ABC wants to make children more comfortable. My experience working with children has been that children love to create things and have those things displayed. One idea of something fun would be to give pediatric patients a blank ceiling tile, allow them to paint it, and then display it along the ceiling in place of a previously blank one. With this idea, the child's art becomes a permanent part of the pediatric facility and can be enjoyed by patients and family now and in the future."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I would love to see an activity room where children who are not contagious can meet and greet one another. I feel like when children see that others are going through something and being brave, they become brave themselves. An activity area would also give parents of the children an opportunity to develop a support system."
3.
Do you have any previous experience working with pediatric patients?
As a pediatric care facility, Company ABC values the expertise of those with pediatric experience. However, do not let a lack of pediatric experience be a deterrent to applying for employment here. Often times employers like to hire less experienced workers and train them. If you have pediatric experience, share it. If you do not, tell the interviewer why you are interested in this specialty area.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have worked with pediatric patients previously, but not in a specialty facility. I have always wanted to concentrate on pediatrics as a specialty which is why I chose to apply at Company ABC. I'd love to see what employment positions you have that would be a fit with my education and experience."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I worked in a pediatrician's office for two years and loved it. I have wanted to make a move in my career where I can learn more skills and have more hands-on experience but stay within the pediatric realm of care."
4.
When you meet new people, what are some things you would like for them to know/recognize about your personality?
Personality and character are two things that are closely related. For instance, someone with an honest character or good work ethic will tend to be more open about his or her beliefs as well as personal and professional expectations. The interviewer is looking for ques as to what character you may bring to the table, so to speak. It is important to remember, body language speaks volume and eye contact is a big indicator of your self-esteem, and your self-esteem is reflected outwardly in your personality. Be confident when you answer and make eye contact with the interviewer.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I would describe my personality as approachable, light-hearted, and positive. I like to give more than I take and pride myself on being part of a team. I always put effort into making sure that people who meet me quickly see those qualities in me and continue to see me as that type of person."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I am a very-easy going person and love to laugh and joke. Although I know there are times to be serious and focused, I still feel like we can have a good attitude and approachable personality. I would hope that people who meet me recognize that qualities in my personality."
5.
Company ABC has volunteers who work in many areas of our facility. Have you ever been a volunteer in any healthcare setting, and if so, what was your favorite part of being a volunteer?
Pediatric patients, when possible, like to be engaged. With this in mind, many pediatric facilities such as Company ABC recruit volunteers to participate in different activities with children and their families. While volunteering is not likely to be a requirement for employment with :company,: a willingness to give of yourself without expecting compensation tells the interviewer that you are active and willing to go the extra mile when needed. Share any experience or thoughts you have.

Rachelle's Answer
"I think utilizing volunteers with pediatric patients is a great idea. I loved volunteering with children. Some of the simplest things like coloring or working puzzles seemed to put a smile on their faces."
