Interviews are of different types.There are behavioral interviews, analytical interviews, general interviews and so on. Basically, the first interview is conducted by a human resource staff. If you overcome the first obstacle, you will then be interviewed by several more people. In some companies the second interview is usually a panel interview while in other companies it is conducted by an employee of the company you are applying at. The interviewer in the second interview can be your potential colleague.

The questions for the second interview are more specific and more detailed. The second interview questions are usually more centered on your desired industry and the position you are interested in. This demands more practice, preparation and research. The second interview provides you the chance to show to the employer that you have learned something from your first interview. So, reflect on your first interview. Learn more about the position and communicate your ability that matches the requirements.

One of the common courses today is nursing. In some countries in Asia, there is a boost in the number of teenagers enrolling for a nursing education. This demand increases the competition among nursing graduates. Some will be lucky and other will not. However, you do not need luck if you can perform well in your job interview. In order to attain this, think first what the employer is expecting for in a candidate. Be very specific and learn from your first interview.

In a second interview, expect discussions about the position you are applying for, about the salary grade, and about the work schedule. On the day of the interview, one of the employers might give you a tour of the company. Furthermore, you may be presented to other colleagues in your future office. If things go smoothly, you might even get a proposal to sign an employment contract. To be a competitive applicant, you should be prepared to the following questions:

· Have you ever tried breaking a rule before? Can you expand it further?
· In your past experience, did you ever make innovative moves to accomplish a task?
· What do you think is the best problem solving approach that works for you?
· Describe a time when you have a conflict with a physician or colleague. How did you handle the situation?
· Most often, you will be working in a group. If so, what do you expect your team members to say about your personality?
· Given a clinical scenario, what method/s do you use to assess and act on a changing condition of a patient?
· From your previous experience, have you ever experience a difficulty in patient assessment? Please tell me more about it.
· What procedures did you helped or witnessed before?
· On your opinion, how many patients can you manage comfortably?
· Are you comfortable with the central lines and/or your skill level?
· Do you have plans for furthering your skills and knowledge?
· How would you respond if the head of the nursing department ask you to do something that you do not want to do?
