The Secret to NAILING graduate nurse interviews
Hey there, welcome to another exciting episode of “High Performance Nursing”! Today, I want to share with you the absolute best thing I ever learned about interviews. Seriously, it changed my life, and I know it’s going to change yours too! So buckle up because we’re about to dive into the incredible world of interview notes.
Let me tell you, interview notes are a game-changer! Picture this: you walk into an interview, all nervous and worried that you’ll forget everything you wanted to say. Sound familiar? Well, guess what? It happens to the best of us! But here’s the secret sauce: interview notes. They’re like your secret weapon against those pesky mind blanks caused by the fight-or-flight response. By taking notes and preparing ahead of time, you’ll have all your best examples and themes right at your fingertips.
Now, you might be wondering, “How exactly do I use these magical notes?” Well, let me break it down for you. When you create your interview notes, you’re essentially creating a safety net for yourself. They’re a brain dump of all your top-notch examples and ideas, so you can practice and polish your responses before the big day. Think of it as a teleprompter, guiding you back on track when you need a little nudge. And here’s the best part: it’s not cheating! It’s a tool to help you shine and show the interview panel just how prepared and dedicated you are.
But hold on, I know you might be thinking, “Hey, what if the panel doesn’t like me using notes?” Fair question! While it’s rare for panels to object, I’ve got a solution for that too. If they ask you to put your notes away, don’t fret. Just keep them discreetly under the table and rely on the work you’ve already done. The beauty lies in the fact that you’ve already practiced and internalized your examples, so your brain is fresh and ready to deliver. And honestly, if an organization doesn’t appreciate your preparedness and dedication, do you really want to work for them?
