Every interviews I've done, I never bring up salary unless they bring it up. And when they do I try to accept whatever the opening salary is and move onto the next subject.

The only thing I ask about in regards to that is how their benefits are. Mainly if they are offering healthcare insurance coverage.

No. I was just curious what salary you were expecting.

^I'll tell you how I did after the interview.

P.S. I just noticed they took the ad off the site I found the opening position I applied for. The ad was there only a week ago. I still have my interview to do. Wonder if they already picked somebody or will within the week.

I am about to become a healthcare professional. I just need to past a drug test and a physical. It took me the whole summer but I did it. This thread is now officially a success.



komorikun - You asked about salary. This place(the hospital) is actually gonna give me $2.50 more than what I expected or would have gotten from a doctor's office.

Congrats.

Well, how much is it? Curious minds want to know.

It's slightly over $30,000 annually. Decent for a small town area.

It'll be twice as much I'm currently making, so I'm happy.

First employer(private healthcare place) didn't hire me after 1 interview.

Second employer(public Dr office) didn't hire me after 2 interviews.

Third employer(hospital) hired me after 1 interview. Here's the funny part, this hospital is affiliated with the second employer that rejected me, so now I might occasionally work for the second employer if they have a shortage on staff. It's a good thing I didn't show any bitterness towards employer #2 because I had to do my pre-employment examination with them this morning. The HR lady was actually happy to see me, it's not her fault that the physician decided to hire somebody with more professional experience.

I think it worked out very well because I did prefer to work at a hospital setting. But the job hunt through the entire summer was brutal.

I had a brief "intro-training" today. Watched 2 hours of videos, then met a couple of administrative staff members about computerized punch-in or through name batch and also talked about benefit offers. Then went to the lab to meet and greet fellow co-workers. Briefly trained about their EMR system, and how the lab runs.

Tomorrow will be my first officially day working with patients.

I think the first month will be OK because most of them will just talk to me about work and how I'm doing. Once I get the hang of things then it'll be scary because they're gonna want to get to know me as a person and what I'm like personality-wise.
