    We at FCS are here to make your interviewing process flow smoothly. Our support team is
    always available to answer your questions.
    With over 25 years experience, FCS has identified some essential ingredients for a successful interview:


    Preparing for the Interview (do your homework)

    • Learn about the area in advance
    • Understand the interview agenda
    • What is expected clinically/professionally
    • Understand the typical work day
    • Know with whom you will speak – names and titles
    • Have organized pre-written questions


    During the Interview

    • Be punctual
    • Dress professionally
    • Start with a firm handshake
    • Maintain eye contact
    • Listen when others are speaking
    • Be prepared to talk about personal issues
    • Speak about your skills relating to the job
    • Take your spouse – but not to the interview
    • When speaking to the interviewer, use his/her name
    • Take notes


    Wrap Up The Interview

    • Be enthusiastic – if you want the job – show it
    • Accentuate the positive
    • Speak positively about the practice and community
    • Ask what comes next – another visit – sample contract – offer
    • Leave understanding the opportunity


    After the Interview

    • Send a thank you note
