Question 2 of 30
Have you ever had a patient want to return a hearing aid? How did you handle that?
View Answers
How to Answer
This question is intentionally asked to see how you interact with patients. Of course, you can't take a used hearing aid, but what you can do is find out why the patient wants to return it. Is it not comfortable? Are they not using it correctly so they feel it doesn't work? Is it a cost issue? Because of your ability to interact with patients, you'll be able to let the interviewer know that you'll take the time to meet with the patient, hear their concerns and figure out a plan together.
Question 3 of 30
Do you feel that you personally benefit from this career choice? How so?
View Answers
How to Answer
Steer clear of the obvious salary, time off and flexible schedule answer. The interviewer wants to know how you this career field has made you more empathetic, more organized or even a better person. Think back to the time before you became an Audiologist and how you are better now because of it. Share a story or a characteristic with the interviewer.

Question 4 of 30
How do you currently follow up with your patients to monitor the status of their hearing aid?
View Answers
How to Answer
As an Audiologist, following up with your patients is very important. You may follow up with patients differently based on their diagnosis and your concern. Give a few examples. Discuss how you check in with the parents of a child that was just fitted with a cochlear implant every day and how you follow up with an elderly patient monthly that just needed a battery replaced in their hearing aid. You provide excellent customer service, relay that to the interviewer.
Question 5 of 30
What procedures do you recommend using when giving a patient their initial exam?
View Answers
How to Answer
As an Audiologist, you'll do everything from examining patients who have hearing, balance, or related ear problems, keep records on the progress of patients or fit cochlear implants. Tell the interviewer the particular tests and steps you would take with a new patient.
