Job Interview nr 1

...of 3.

I never applied to cardiology; I applied to internal medicine. My application got sent through to cardio, because they had no opening in internal medicine. I loved that about this hospital; others don't bother.

I got a job interview at cardio.
I love cardio, for the record, but when I applied at this particular hospital, I had to pick one, and I picked the most obvious one.

I had my sister drop me off (of course, I could have used the tram, but she was driving in more or less that direction anyway) and I found the OP clinic quite easily. The receptionist immediately asked me if I were here for the job interview, I said yes. She went off and told him I was here. (And, since I was 15mins early, the good impression started early)

Between my charm, my cultural background and apparently a more impressive resume than I thought I had, it took him less than 10 minutes to decide he wanted me. Having done cardio research, and being a BLS/AED instructor did help too.

I have a job, though I have 2 more interviews. He was happy for me to let him know Tuesday.


  1. Good for you! If only all interviews were so easy!

  2. That's great! What if one of the other job interviews sounds even better and they offer you a job? That would be a nice problem to have.

  3. Oh my goodness, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I am so happy for you!
