Q: How should I prepare for my interview?
A: First of all, congratulations on making it to the next step in the hiring process. Your recruiter will provide details about the interview, such as the time and directions to your interview site. However, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Before you come in, write down your responsibilities, challenges, and accomplishments from previous positions and how they might prepare you for a position at MaineHealth.
- Dress appropriately. Of course, dress codes vary across jobs, but professional attire is always appreciated. Our offices and hospital are "fragrance free" - this means you should not wear perfume, cologne, or scented products of any kind since it can be uncomfortable to certain patients.
- If you have questions about the interview process or about what skills the position requires - check with your recruiter. He/she will be your coach for your interview at all of the MaineHealth organizations.
- Smile! Interviews can make people nervous. But remember, we're excited to meet you, and we want to see you do your best by letting your enthusiasm show.
Q: How do I find out what a particular position pays?
A: Salaries are market based and can vary based upon experience, job requirements, schedules and level of responsibility. We invite you to discuss salary and compensation questions directly with your recruiter. We do not share salary information regarding specific positions until you have applied to the position.
