I interview people all the time. Not everyone comes dressed in a suit, some
people come from work in scrubs. Something in between the two is OK. Jeans
and sneakers are a BIG NO.
Some may preceive wearing a suit as trying too hard...my opinion, the person
who goes the extra distance in appearance, to me means they are going to
take pride in how they present their work.Wearing a business-like (not
flashy), suit will leave a positive impression.
Have a polished well written resume, remember to bring an extra copy. If
the facility you are interviewing with has a website, get online and let
them know that you went to their website to find out more about them. This
shows major interest.Be prompt. Know that is it OK to ask questions. You in
essense are interviewing them also.
Be prepared to fill out the entire application, do not write 'refer to
resume' big turn off.. Human Resources has their reasons for the application
process. Be prepared to negotiate salary. Your school director should be
able to help you in what suburban and city starting salaries are.You may
think they are offering you more money than you ever made and then find out
you can not pay the rent.Know what the cost of living is in the area you are
applying, you do not want to under sell yourself.
Be prepared to do a scanning interview. Not all places ask for this, we do.
Take off that suit jacket and roll up your sleeves.
Do not be nervous, it is OK not to know the equipment you are being tested
on, most just want to know that you understand and can demonstrate the
basics. Be confident and
