Things the they didn’t teach in medical school part 14: the job interview

OK, so this isn’t specific to medicine.

People are bad at interviewing for jobs. Doctors are probably especially bad…because expectations are too uniform but the criteria are becoming harder.

The fact is, when you interview for a job in medicine you aren’t especially “special”. You think you are special, one in a million, but in China there are a thousand of you with the same skills.

If you want the job remember:
every day is a job interview.

Finding out what the employers want if half the interview.

Being adaptable is the other half.
