Desirable Qualities and Skills to Keep in Mind During Medical Assistant and Nursing Assistant Interviews from the Allen School

  1. 1. INTERVIEW PREP: DESIRABLE QUALITIES/SKILLS Decent Grades Recruiters often use G.P.A. criterion as a way of screening out less desirable job candidates. To some, good grades indicate that the applicant is motivated and goal-oriented. Communication and Interpersonal Skills The ability to communicate effectively with others and get along with a variety of different types of personalities are two of the most desirable qualities in job candidates, according to recruiters and employers. Enthusiasm Its not enough just to have the right qualifications; an employer needs to know that you are willing to give 100 percent to your job. Interviewers are impressed by candidates who are alert, responsive, and energetic. Flexibility Employers need to know that the people they hire can expand and change as their companies do. Applicants who are receptive to new ideas and concepts are highly valued by employers. Leadership Even in entry-level positions most employers look for evidence of leadership qualities. Successful companies need self-starters who are not afraid to take responsibility for doing the best job possible. A High Energy Level A job candidates willingness to work hard matters a great deal. Employers want to know that you are committed to devoting the prime hours of your day to the job. Maturity An elusive quality that employers almost always mention in connection with first job hires, maturity essentially means knowing how to handle yourself in a business situation. Misplaced humorous remarks, giggling at inappropriate moments or being indiscreet about company information are tell-tale signs of immaturity.
