Private Medical Practice Q.
THE QUESTIONS THEY WILL ASK
I am dividing this section into private and academia. But most of these questions are not exclusive. You may get a question from either section. But I want you to get an idea about different approach to interviewing. So consider each set of questions as one complete sample interview.
There can be numerous right answers to any question. The correct answers may change with individual circumstances. But there are some ground rules to answer any question.
- Always speak the truth. Lies will be caught, if not today then tomorrow.
- If the truth may not sound good then say it in a positive way.
- Keep your answers short and to the point.
- Never badmouth your previous employer.
Sample questions for interviewing at Private Medical Practice
Q: Why are you applying in this area?
The group wants to know whether you are willing to settle in the area or not. They may be curious to find out that you know somebody around, who may have given you information about the group’s financial or professional status. Possible answers can be:
“I am looking for someplace warm to settle down.”
“Most of my family is around the area”
“I love skiing and would love to be in the snow”
Q: Why are you leaving your previous job?
Every body is curious why were you not happy in the last job. Or were you laid off. Now your previous employer may have been the devil’s spokesman and you may have been doing everything right. But still hold that urge to let them know about that scoundrel. If you do criticize your previous job then you will project yourself as a problem employee. Possible answers can be:
“I am looking for a better opportunity.”
“I always wanted to move to this area.”
“They do not offer partnership. And someday I would like to become one.”
Q: Do you have any questions?
Well if you don’t, you are not serious.
