Interview Tips

Interviewing is a skill that can be improved by a few fundamental rules. Your success lies in the first impression with the Client.

  • Wear a conservative business suit.
  • Personal Hygiene - Keep after shave / cologne to a minimum. Carry breath mints and DO NOT CHEW GUM!
  • Be on time or even early.
  • Bring extra copies of your CV and a notebook for notes.
  • Body language - listen, listen, listen! Make plenty of eye contact. Leaning forward as you listen shows your interest, as do a few nods to show you are listening.
  • Ask for their business card. This will make it easier for you to write your "thank you" notes.
  • DO NOT BRING UP SALARY. Let the client bring up this subject.
  • Ask open-ended questions such as:
    - How many patients would I be expected to see in a day?
    - What is the percentage of managed care in the area?
    - How long has the group been in practice?
    - What is the call schedule?
  • DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL while dining with the Client.
    Even if they drink, refrain.
  • Express your thanks for the interview, and ask for the job. If they offer you a contract, it puts you in control of your offer; you can say yes, no, or negotiate the contract.
