Once you’ve graduated from our Medical Administrative Assistant Program only one thing stands between you and starting your career in the healthcare sector, the dreaded first interview.
The good news is that interviews aren’t actually as scary as you might think they are and there are plenty of things you can do to prepare for them. In this article, we’ll be looking at a few interview preparation tips that can help you showcase your talents and abilities to potential employers.
As a medical administrative assistant, you’ll be the backbone of any practice you work for, responsible for ensuring all operations run efficiently. Because of this responsibility, it is incredibly important that you are able to demonstrate you understand the way the company you are applying for works.
Before attending an interview make sure you thoroughly research the company you’re interested in working for. Having that information to hand will allow you to show your interviewer that you understand the company’s objectives and you can explain why and how you can help the organization achieve its goals.
A day or two before the interview, re-read the job description for the position you are applying for. Most companies emphasize what they think is important about the role in the job description, so there are key insights in there about what skills and abilities you should be emphasizing in your interview.
A complete understanding of the job description will allow you to anticipate questions and know what skills you will need to highlight. It will also help prevent you from getting bogged down in unnecessary details while you are preparing for your interview.
While the companies you might be applying for roles with are going to differ, the role of medical administrative assistant is going to stay largely the same. This means that, regardless of where you apply, there are going to be similar interview questions on certain topics. These include:
Before going into any interview, it is important that you understand areas in which you excel and those in which you are still growing. Obviously, you will want to answer any questions about your ability to do the job by emphasizing your strengths and follow that up by giving an example of an experience where you were able to learn and grow from a challenge.
However, don’t be afraid to discuss any weaknesses with the interviewer. Many employers see candidates admitting to the need for professional growth as a sign of honesty and the ability to take constructive criticism, both of which are vital in the workplace.
