When interviewing for a healthcare job, it’s important to ask the right questions. Asking the wrong questions can set you up for disappointment in the future. You want to ensure that you have all the facts before accepting any position.
Behavioral questions are designed to elicit concrete examples of how a candidate has handled specific situations in the past. This information can be invaluable in predicting how a candidate will perform in a similar situation in the future. In other words, behavioral questions can help you determine whether or not a candidate is a good fit for your company.
Sharpening a critical tongue is one of the fastest ways to destroy workplace morale. In no place is this more true than in a complex healthcare environment where lives depend on the team’s ability to trust each other in stressful situations.
