“Any tips for a new grad to stand out in an interview?”

I got 10 tips:

1. Dress for success
2. Research the company
3. Plan your travels – anticipate delays
4. Practice the expected questions
5. Bring an extra copy of your resume/CV
6. Sell yourself – promote what you bring to the table
7. Have questions to ask
8. Ask for business cards – take notes: bring a portfolio
9. When will they decide? who will contact you and when?
10. ALWAYS follow up with a thank you letter/card

 

Until next time…

How can a new grad get hired into a specialty area?

What if you don’t want to work medsurg when you graduate from nursing? What if you want to work in a specialty area? What if you want to work L&D? OB? ED? ICU? OR? PACU?

We all know hiring new graduate nurses into these areas is tough because these areas usually want a nurse with prior staff nurse experience. I thought I’d give you five tips that might help you get a leg up:

1. Find out the details. Don’t believe rumors.
2. Request a personal one-on-one conversation with the manager.
3. What do you have that they need?
4. Do whatever it takes.
5. Be OK with not getting what you want.
