Once you have successfully been granted a job interview you need to then prepare for that interview

Health Science

Once you have successfully been granted a job interview you need to then prepare for that interview.  Those individuals most successful during an interview are those that prepare. During this discussion we will consider some questions important prior to a job interview. As we have done in past modules, let’s work through these questions one at a time collectively coming to consensus. Joining this discussion early and checking in frequently will help us all to learn from each other throughout the week. 

The first question is opinion and/or experience based so that you can begin the discussion immediately without having completed all of your readings. You must apply your assigned readings to subsequent questions.

First, let’s reflect on this question based on what we’ve learned so far this term:

  • What was the hardest interview question you have ever been asked?  What was the best question you have ever been asked – one that made you really think about your answer?

Now, let’s apply our readings as we discuss the following questions:

  • Let’s think about what happens when we get the call for an interview. We know that it is important to learn about the company prior to the interview and that there is an over-abundance of information about most organizations available with just a simple web search. What sorts of information are important going into an interview situation? Where would we go for that information? How might this differ for an initial interview versus a follow-up interview? Having gathered this information, how do we demonstrate our knowledge to the prospective employer?
  • What types of questions should we ask at an interview? Are there questions we should not ask at an initial interview? How might we respond if an interviewer asks a question that we are not comfortable with, or that we know to be illegal?
  • Often, as we search for jobs, we are all too aware of the urgency of becoming employed. We may have family to support and bills to pay. Because of this we may have an internal sense of desperation. How do we control that during our communications with a prospective employer (e.g. cover letter, interview, etc.)?
