How to Answer
What do you expect work to be like from your experience? You may have little on the job experience, but you have a clear understanding of the job description and your education to back you up. The interviewer is checking for understanding and expectations. You may have a lot of questions about what a typical day would look like, but start with what you know: You'll be on your feet all day. You need to prepare, maintain and clean equipment. You prepare the patient each time you do imaging, taking down their medical history, positioning them on the table, performing the imaging and then labeling and reviewing it. Show your understanding that there may be difficulties with patients who are scared or if they are heavy you may have to do some lifting. It's a physical job, so be sure to show them you can handle it.

Question 3 of 28

How to Answer
Speaking to patients in language they can understand is one of the challenges of working in the medical field. So what exactly is a computerized axial tomography scan? A CT scan, or CAT scan, is able to take a series of images from different angles in order to show a cross-section of a particular area of the body. When talking to patient, you can explain how this process will aid in diagnosing their problem. If it's a broken bone, you can explain how they will be able to see if there are other areas that were broken that didn't show up in the X-Ray. It will be helpful to show the doctor if surgery is required or if there are any other issues that need to be addressed.

This position might be a step forward toward your goal of becoming a radiologic technologist. Your interviewer will be looking to gain insight toward your career goals and where your goals fit into their department. It is important to know the culture of promotion in the organization that you're interviewing with, so make sure to do all of the research you can.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
