How to Show Your Added Value During a Healthcare Interview

added value during interview

One of the most important things you can do during an interview is show the hiring manager what you can bring to the company – beyond just day-to-day tasks. Employers are looking for candidates who can add value to their organization. Their main goal is to find top performers who they know can excel.

Use these 4 tips to show them why you’re bound to succeed:

1. Put in your research.

Learn as much as you can about the company before your interview. Specifically, make sure to carefully review the job description. Hiring managers are very particular with these descriptions because they want to attract the right employees. Be prepared to talk about how your skills and qualifications align with those listed in the job posting. 

2. Make a list of awards you’ve received. 

Be sure to mention any awards or other forms of recognition you’ve received – at work or school. This shows you’re a top performer with a proven track record of achievement. Don’t worry that it’ll come off as bragging; hiring managers want to that you’ve gotten recognition from past employers for your skills and talents. 

3. Draw attention to measurable outcomes.

Numbers give hiring managers concrete, quantifiable evidence of your value. These numbers don’t have to relate to profitability. Rather, they can point to time saved, costs reduced, or processes improved. For example, if you developed a method to triage patients so they could be seen faster, explain how your problem-solving helped the company provide more efficient care. 

4. Call out the times you went above and beyond.

Take a deep dive into your job experience and consider when you put in the extra effort. Maybe you helped a patient overcome a chronic illness or recover from a tough surgery. Or maybe you worked in a particularly challenging unit during COVID. Be ready to tell these stories during your interview.
