One of the most common concerns for college students is whether or not they’ll be able to find a job upon graduation. This is a concern that’s fairly widespread among students, regardless of their major in college or career choice. It’s important to note that no matter where a person attends school, or what they do, there’s never any guarantee of finding a job or employment. It is unfortunate that some students or people may be led to believe that jobs are easy to find, but that isn’t how it is in the real world. Sure, some people may have better luck finding a job than others, in terms of time, but the truth is that finding a job may be difficult, and this may be totally independent of where a person went to school or any other factors.
If you’re lucky enough to get a job interview, there may be some specific things that a person looking to hire you as a CNA may want to know. First of all, they’re may to ask a lot of questions to try and determine your character. People who are in the nursing and medical profession need to be individuals with high moral standards because they are working with vulnerable people. If you seem like someone who won’t be patient with those in need, you may have a harder time getting hired as a CNA. Your interviewer may also want to know where you’ve attended school, as well as what your experience level is—are you fresh out of school? Or have you worked as a CNA before in other places?
The person conducting your interview may also ask you questions to determine how you’d act in certain situations. This is a common interview practice to get an idea of the decision making capabilities of potential candidates. Keep in mind that there’s no specific right answer for a lot of these questions, but you just want to be yourself, and answer honestly, but also be proper and professional. After your interview, it may be a good idea thank the person conducting your interview for their time, and follow up a few days later with an email that thanks them once again, and reiterates why you’re a good candidate for the job. After that, it may be a good idea not to send anymore messages or make anymore calls, just wait to hear back, and if you’re the right person for the job, they’ll likely let you know on their terms and time frame.
