Preparing for Medical Assistant and CNA Job Interviews

The old saw says, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of the cure”.  Nowhere is this more relevant than in the process of job interviewing.  As another old (but still true) saying goes, “You only get one chance to make a first impression”.  So it is exceedingly important that before you head out the door to go on an interview for a position as a certified nursing assistant, a medical assistant or a medical billing and coding specialist, you prepare yourself well.  This not only includes dressing for success and being punctual to arrive to the interview.  It also involves being ready to adequately answer any and all questions the interviewer may pose to you. Our last post focused on making sure your resume is in top condition.  So today, we’re going to focus on being prepared for the interview process.  Again, the job pros over at have produced some very excellent materials specific to the types of questions a CNA, medical assistant or medical billing candidate may reasonably be asked in an interview.  Below are links to specific information for each of these job fields.  If you’ve recently completed your CNA training or the medical assistant or medical billing programs at Allen School, you should definitely read these documents before you head out to find a new job.
