Nice to hear I am one of the top candidates for a position, sucks that they are still interviewing though. I really really want the Urgent Care Position. So I will keep my fingers, toes, eyes, and everything else pretty much crossed and hold my breath for a positive result. I really tried to professionally sell myself for this position via my follow-up email.
"First I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for taking the time to interview me for the RN position at XXXX. I am excited about the prospect of getting in on the ground floor as you transition to what I am sure will be a benefit to the community at large. I am confident that my training through XXXXX College and my experience in both Homecare and Long Term Care has prepared me for a challenging and rewarding experience as a Registered Nurse within your dynamic group.
I feel that I would make a great asset and strong candidate for the position of RN. I am confident that you will agree that my skills, eagerness to learn and apply new things, along with my strong references, make me the right candidate for the position. My experience with Case Management of both adult and pediatric clients, as well as clinical skills such as; ng/g/j tube feeding and placement, complex wound care, IV therapies via peripheral and central lines, to include hydration, TPN, antibiotics and blood administration, as well as my wide range of practice with skills along varied populations and ages of clients, has prepared me to meet the needs of the job description and exceed your expectations.
I can assure you I would be a dependable, eager and motivated employee with exceptional critical thinking skills and the ability to adapt to situations as they arise. I have great customer service, organization and prioritization skills. I work well independently and I thrive as part of a strong team. I possess an earnest interest in the healthcare of those in my care and strive to always provide quality care, compassion, and cultural competency.
I appreciate your time and look forward to working with you in the future. Once again, thank you for considering me for this opportunity to share my excitement and put my skills to work for you at XXXXXX. I hope to hear from you soon "
Additionally I have another Interview tomorrow for a different company, but once again in the Homecare field, but with adults as opposed to children. With this one also came this integrity test I had to take and seriously based on the amount of times it asked me if I would fist fight someone, if I would defend myself if someone challenged me to a fist fight, or hit someone because they were bothering me... well what the heck kind of place is this? Should I be scared? Plus it just kept asking me if I wanted drugs!
