You’ve caught the eye of the HR Director and you’ve landed an interview with a physical therapy clinic—congrats! Chances are you’ll be competing against a handful of other applicants, so you’ll need to set yourself apart during your interview. We’re sharing 3 tips to help you prepare for going from new grad to new physical therapist.
Arrive Early
Allowing yourself some “breathing room” upon arrival is key. This allows you to get acclimated to the environment, watch the flow of the clinic, and most importantly, review your notes before the interview.
Know Your Pitch
Although you’re not a sales associate, it’s important to know how to promote yourself and your abilities. Have talking points on your background, education, experience and WHY you’re the right physical therapist to join the team.
Research the Company
It’s not only an interview for the Clinic Partner, but consider yourself interviewing the company as well. You’ll want to make sure it’s a great fit—so take time beforehand to research the clinic online. Diving into their website, company culture and social media will help determine if it’s going to be a nice fit. And having some company knowledge in your back pocket will help impress the Clinic Partner.
As always, practicing your interview skills will help build your confidence and perfect your interview habits. Do you think you’ve found your fit at Foothills? Visit our Careers page to apply today!
