Preparing for Interviews in Healthcare

6. Step 2 - Reflection

Now, it’s time to think about reflection. Once you know what your potential employer is looking for, you need to reflect on the ways that you meet these criteria. These will be found in the person specification and job description.

Recruiters in nursing or midwifery also expect that you will have built self-awareness over the course of your academic work experience so that you know what you enjoy, what you are good at as well as the things you find more difficult.

When you are reflecting on your previous experience, such as your time at university, make sure you also articulate what you’ve learnt from your experience, good or bad. We've had feedback from employers that this is an area candidates miss.
