Here are some pitfalls to avoid, but remember we are really looking forward to meeting you to find out why you’re a health professional of the future.
Don’t talk TOO much! We want to hear about your skills and experience but it’s also important to keep to the point!
Maintain natural eye contact. Don’t stare us out or anything! But also don’t look at the floor... Just think about the normal eye contact you would make with a friend when you’re having a chat.
Don’t make inappropriate jokes or share horror stories! Obviously smile and be yourself but we’re looking for the next generation of professionals (professional being the key word here!)
Don’t be negative but if you must, show how you turned it into a positive.
Conduct yourself in a manner that shows you are free from bias and are happy to treat anyone from a cross-section of cultures and society.
