Getting Ahead to a New Direction

Guest Author - Helen V. Calalang-Javier, MSN, RNC, IBCLC


    Are you looking for a job in the healthcare industry? How does one stand during the job interview and leave a lasting positive impression on your prospective employer?

    In today’s job market, everything is about competitiveness and presentation. One has to have an impressive resume but also one must match this with an impressive presentation during the interview. Most health care facilities have recruiters who conduct the preliminary interview and selection of potential candidates. Behavioral interviewing techniques are now replacing the traditional interview style. The applicant oftentimes undergoes a series of interviews, either by a panel or by a one-on-one interview with the employer. The key to success is in the preparation and win-win presentation that will leave a lasting impression with the employer who will say, “You’re hired!”

    Here are some tips:

    • Find a job and the right health care facility that is appealing to you.
    • Learn more about the company’s philosophy, mission statement, and vision.
    • Find out about the benefits that are offered such as pension plans; health coverage; paid holidays, sick and annual leave time; tuition reimbursement and career ladder programs
    • Create a winning resume. Have a professional create your resume if one does not know how.
    • Set up appointments for the interview.
    • Find the exact address of the company and call them for directions. Promptness to an appointment is crucial. Arrive early and try to be calm.
    • Dress for success. Business attire is the way to go when coming for an interview. First impression plays a critical role in decision-making.
    • Attend job fairs and career events. This is one way to find out what skills are marketable and about new openings. Most job fairs have seminars that offer continuing education credits, so take advantage of these programs.


    Quoted from Sally Berger, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” Good luck and happy job-hunting!
