Interviewing Tips

See what is possible when you are prepared for new opportunities.

Froedtert Health offers a dynamic work environment that enables you to excel. We want you to be well prepared for new opportunities here. We even want to ensure that you are comfortable and focused during the interview process. These tips can help you make a great first impression.

  • Start your interview with a firm hand shake. Ideally, your hand shake should be 2 to 5 seconds and firm, not crushing. Be sure to smile and make eye contact. You want it to be evident that you are happy and enthusiastic about the interview.
  • Turn off your cell phone. Or better yet, don’t bring it at all. The last thing you need during an interview is a distracting call or text. Don’t let your cell phone hurt your chances of getting a call you really want…one involving a job offer.
  • Remember to keep things positive. The interviewer is evaluating you as a potential co-worker. Behave like someone YOU would want to work with.
  • Talk too much? Practice some interview questions with a friend. They’ll let you know if you’re giving long-winded answers, or not giving enough information. Their feedback can help you get it right when it matters most.
  • Be gracious and courteous to everyone you encounter before, during and after your interview. Your interviewer might ask these individuals how you treated them, or if you might be a good fit for the team.
  • Always show up 10 to 15 minutes before your interview. This will give you time to get settled, and help you set a positive tone. If you fly through the door 30 seconds before your allotted time, how are you going to convince the interviewer that you won’t be late for work?
  • Maintain good eye contact during the interview, but remember, this is not a staring contest! Avoiding eye contact may lead your interviewer to think you are not interested in the job.
  • Avoid using “umm,” “like” and “you know” when answering interview questions. Pause for a few seconds and gather your thoughts before you respond.
  • Keep your online application, resume and credentials current. Also, be prepared to verbally express how you have enhanced your skills and education over time.
