ROSLYN ROBERTS: Hi. My name’s Roslyn Roberts, and today I want to give you some tips when job searching. It’s really important that when you submit your resume, that your contact information is up to date. And by that, your voicemail is set up on your cell phone, and that you’ve cleared out all your messages. This is a great impression for your future employer, that they’re going to leave you messages, and that you’re going to follow up in a timely fashion to them. Hopefully that is helpful with you and your job search. Good luck.

SPENCER PRINCE: Hi. My name is Spencer Prince and I recruit for Northside Hospital women’s services, including labor and delivery and mom baby. Today I have a couple of interview tips, starting with number one. Be sure to know the job requirements for the position that you are applying for. Very important. Number two, using the STAR method as a base when responding to behavioral-based interview questions. The STAR breaks down as Situation, a Task, the Action, and the Results. Number three, most importantly, be confident and claim the opportunity as yours.
ELLEN REIS: Hi, my name is Ellen. I work here at Northside Hospital, human resources. I am one of the onboarding specialists here at Northside, and I would like to tell every new hire onboarding here at Northside that you’re going to receive a lot of emails coming from us. First, it’s going to be the background, I-9, and some employee health screening information. But I would say the most important is to keep in touch with your onboarding specialist. That way, we can work out any difficulties, any questions that you have through your onboarding process.
KATIE JONES: Hi, guys. My name is Katie. And I am the pharmacy recruiter at Northside Hospital. And I want to talk to you about the night before your interview, because we’ve all been there, that moment where you’re going through your closet trying to figure out what to wear and your mind is running 100 miles per hour trying to figure out what questions are they going to ask and how am I going to answer them. Because let’s face it, interviewing is stressful.
So if you’re there and nerves are running a little high, I just want to encourage you to take a couple minutes to remember why you chose your career, to remember why you love what you do, and how it’s impacted the lives of those around you. So in those moments where it’s stressful and you’re not sure what you need to say going in, just remember to be yourself. And remember the impact that you’ve had on those around you.
