Often, hospitals and other medical facilities put their new hire procedures on hold for the holidays because things are just too crazy. That means, the holiday season is an excellent time to brush up on your interviews so you can nail that next medical assistant interview, starting the New Year off right.
5 Tips for Nailing an Interview for a Medical Assistant Position
The following tips can help you to organize, prepare and present yourself well so you come out ahead of the pack when you show up for that interview.
Be prepared to ask them a few questions. A job interview is also your opportunity to learn more about what you’re getting into so be prepared to ask them a few questions as well. Your interviewers may ask you to interview them, or, at the very least, ask if you have any questions. While it may not be appropriate to take out a 10-point list (not at this first interview, anyway), it is a good idea to have a few questions prepared. If nothing else, it will help you stand out a bit from nervous interviewees who simply said, “No,” and then left.
Examples of questions that are important to ask and can make a good impression include things like:
—How long have some of your key medical assistants worked here?
—Are there opportunities for advancement here?
—How would you describe the mission statement and workplace values?
—What do you enjoy most about working here?
Believe it or not, you may walk out with a job offer you opt not to take, depending on their answers and body language.
