The Interviews Part Two

Rather than edit the original post I thought I'd tell you all about the last interview and the outcomes here.

My last interview went well with a lot of the same questions cropping up, but some new ones too. So here's a few more to add to the list;

* Can you tell us a bit about two of these drugs? (hands over paper with furosemide, digoxin, theophylline and I can't remember which other drug)

* What qualities do you think we are looking for in a pre-reg student and can you convince us that you have them?

* What has been your proudest achievement?

* Are you planning to continue your career in hospital pharmacy?

Ok, so now for the outcomes, my first interview which I thought I'd done alright on, albeit a little formal, I was rejected. My second interview which I came out of there thinking what a mess I'd made of it, though I had let more of my personality through, I was accepted! My last interview I will never know the outcome of as they gave me a courtesy call to tell me that they hadn't made a decision and I let them know I had accepted another place. Miss Lola Cherry Cola is going to be a hospital pre-resitration student!

So I guess the moral of the story is don't hold back too much, let your personality shine through. After all, the interviewers are looking for someone who is not only a enthusiastic and dedicated person, but someone who they feel they could get on with, someone who they feel will slot nicely into the team at that hospital.

I hope these two blog posts will help anyone who is currently going for a pre-registration place. Best of luck!
