Imagine you are at the end of your internship, having just finished your classwork and you are ready to start looking for your new career in healthcare. You’ve got a great resume, and you’ve been practicing your interview skills and you finally get that call you’ve been waiting for to go into a clinic and interview for a job. Below is a list of a few things you should be sure to take with you when you go.
- Directions and Contact Info – Be sure you know how to get to the location the interview is at. In fact it’s a good idea to do a drive by beforehand so you can be on time for your interview. Also try to find out who you need to look for when you arrive
- Resume – You probably already submitted a copy, but it’s always a good idea to bring a few extra copies along.
- Identification – You will probably have this with you anyway, but it’s always good to have this available.
- Note Pad and Pen – You can take notes and write down questions as they come up. This will help you cover all your bases as you interview without interrupting the flow of the interview.
- Questions – Your interview will likely end with the asking you any questions. Prepare a list beforehand so you know what you want to ask. Even if something was already covered it’s OK to ask for further clarification at the end of the interview.
