4 TIPS FOR PASSING A HOSPITAL JOB INTERVIEW

Whilst there are many different roles available within a hospital, the following four tips will help you to not only prepare for your interview but also be the standout candidate.

Whether you are applying to become a nurse, a midwife, a healthcare assistant, a hospital porter, an administrative assistant or a radiographer, all of the following tips will be useful in helping you prepare!

TIP #1 – The very first interview question for all hospital job roles will be the ‘tell me about yourself’ question. It is very important you get off to a flying start with your response to the first interview question, and to achieve that goal, make sure you talk about your skills, qualities, and experience you have that will help add value to their already-established hospital team.

TIP #2 – Again, it is very important you carry out some research before attending any hospital job interview. In particular, visit the hospital’s website and look at their values, their mission, and their objectives.

TIP #3 – Perhaps the biggest tip we can give you is to make sure you read and study both the job description and the person specification for your chosen hospital job role. Once you have read the documents, think of previous situations you have been in where you have demonstrated each of the core requirements of the role.

TIP #4 – We feel confident that if you prepare answers to all 26 interview questions listed on this page, you will have a far greater chance of success at your hospital job interview. The 26 questions listed are the most common asked across all job roles within hospitals!
