When first impressions really count
Interviewing is the single most important part of the job search progress. A great resume and cover letter will get you in the door, but the interview is where the rubber meets the road. Factors, such as what you wear, your handshake and when you show up, can ultimately make a big difference when it comes down to deciding between an offer and a rejection letter. This probably goes without saying, but you should always wear a suit (and tie for men) to an interview. The only rare exception is if the hospital specifically tells you not to wear one. Dressing appropriately shows respect for the organization. As for arrival time, you should never be late for a job interview. Conversely, arriving at the receptionist desk two hours before your scheduled interview time is not acceptable either. Plan to be in the building, through any security the building may have in place and at the receptionist's desk five to 10 minutes before your scheduled interview time.
