Question 2 of 20
How many days were you absent from work last year?
Professional Answers Preview
"I had zero unexcused absences last year. In total, I took 12 vacation days out of my 15 allotted days. I was sick just 2 and those were accompanied by a note from my doctor. Once I was late due to a terrible snow storm and I always try to be 10 minutes early for my shift."
A part of being a diligent employee is to ensure that you are always on time and present when expected. It's great to even be 10 minutes early rather than just showing up right on the dot. Talk to the interviewer about your attendance.
More Answer Examples
Experienced Example
"I think I missed 10 days, counting vacation time. Of those, 5 were for my vacation. For 3 days, I was excused under a doctor's note. The other 2 absences were pre-approved family days."

Question 3 of 20
Why should we hire you?
Professional Answers Preview
"I'm qualified and passionate about your cause, as well as patient care. I am excited about the idea of delivering value to your organization and will go above and beyond for your patients."
If you can't think of ways that you are unique, ask a few friends or family members what they feel sets you apart from other people. Their observations may help you understand how you are perceived. Perhaps you already know what sets you apart! This could include any industry accolades, special achievements, additional industry related training, a second language, or how involved you are in the community. Don't be afraid to brag about yourself a bit. In an interview, you are your strongest advocate.

I have a proven track record of successes and will bring my years of knowledge to this role. Having been a part of the industry for nearly half of my life, I have seen a ton of change and have adapted to each and every change or innovation with ease and excitement, and I look forward to doing that here as well."
Entry Level Example
"I believe that you should hire me as your next abdominal sonographer because, in addition to graduating top of my class, I completed a successful internship where I gained an incredible amount of knowledge related specifically to abdominal sonography."
