Part 2: Template Etiquette
Areas for Improving Interview Technique
I will consider improving my dressing for the future job interviews because I wore stripped dress. It is better for nurses to wear solid color dress because it adds to the professional look. I also think that I was wearing a wrist band that was not professional. In future I will avoid wearing any kind of fancy accessories. Another important technique for improving interview technique is to wear dress shoes.
Manners are essential for a good interview so I will sit in a straight posture. I will avoid slouching because it is against the professional mannerism. I will keep my hands out of pockets and avoid putting them cross my chest. A sincere smile is important for showing warmth and respect. I will avoid wringing my hand or making a fist because that’s a bad gesture. Dragging or shuffling feet is also against mannerism so I will avoid it.
3. Verbal communication (what you say and how you say it; what you will avoid and why)
I will start by saying hello with a smile. After that I will explain why I want to join this profession by saying, “I am highly motivated to join this profession and I want to dedicate my life to it”. I would avoid using confusing words like ‘I think’ or ‘maybe’. These gives a bad impression to the interviewer.
