Question 2 of 30
What do you know about our hospital?
View Answers
How to Answer
Make sure you do your homework before your interview. Knowing about the hospital, and staff will show the interviewer that you are interested in their particular position and not just floating your resume. First, mention their goals and mission and how you appreciate their involvement within the community. Talk about the awards and accreditations the hospital has received. Reviewing the annual reports on their website is a great way to brush up on how the hospital is making a difference in the community.

Question 3 of 30
Think about a difficult boss, professor or coworker. What made him or her difficult? How did you successfully interact with this person?
View Answers
How to Answer
Show the interviewer that you work well with most personalities even though you recognize there are some folks out there who are quite difficult to please.

Think about that one person at work who is seen as hard to please. Perhaps there is someone at work who tries to intimidate others. Talk to the interviewer about what made this person challenging and what their relationship was to you. Avoid speaking poorly of anyone and be sure to end your response on a positive note.

Question 4 of 30
When entering a new job, describe how you build relationships with your new coworkers and supervisors.
View Answers
How to Answer
The interviewer would like to know how you plan to start relationships with your new co-workers. Due to a wide variety of personalities, coworker connections can take time to form. How do you ensure that you have a strong line of communication with your co-workers and supervisors, right from the start?

Here are some ideas for getting started on the right foot:

- Be willing to accept feedback and help
- Offer to join a committee or volunteer assistance in some way
- Do not have an air of entitlement or act as though you know the ins and outs immediately
- Avoid all clinic gossip, at all cost
- Be thankful for the equipment that you have. Don't complain about your used computer or your slow dial out line!
- Be early on your first day (and every day after that!)
- Come dressed appropriately

Question 5 of 30
Where do you see your career one year from now?
View Answers
How to Answer
This question is a short variation of the typical interview query, 'Where do you see yourself in five years?' Instead, the interviewer may ask more directly, 'Where do you see yourself in the next year?'.

Interviewing, hiring, and onboarding is an expensive and time-consuming endeavor for any company. The interviewer wants assurance that, if hired, you will see this as a longer-term fit. Discuss your career plans, goals, and how those fit with what this company is offering. Describe your passion for this opportunity, and what you like about the company for which you are applying.
