Research, research, research: Depending on available time, use every possible means to learn all you can about the Hospital and the position. Go online to the Hospital’s Website. Find out as much as possible about the job you are applying for within the hospital. This will help you decide if the job is right for you and will make you more confident in the interview.
Other research options can include:
- Contact the informal contact person on the advertisement and discuss the job with them. Try to organise a visit of the proposed area you wish to be working in only if possible. This will give you valuable insight about the job and give you a chance to familiarise yourself with how the relevant department is run.
- When confirming your interview, ask who the interview panel will be and their positions as this will give you guidance as to the specific areas of interest.
