Default Interview tips !!

Hi All (newbies, scout & the forum staff),

can anyone give me good interview tips (general guidelines for a good IV outcome) and how to ace them, to provide me with already available links to IV guidelines (I faintly remember seeing one by applicant guide) and also to give me some info if there is any professional coaching available for it (and also whether it is really needed for an IMG).

Thanking all in advance,

raj123

Default Re: Interview Prep

My wife is an IMG (Cali, Colombia). She is a third-year resident at a community hospital in New York. We developed a service, IMGAngel, that works with applicants on their interviewing skills.

The typical engagement consists of three to four practice sessions via Skype or g-chat. Each session lasts approximately 45 minutes. We will go through a series of questions, evaluate your responses, and then provide feedback on how to better respond and present yourself. Each successive session progressively focuses on improving your weak areas and giving you more confidence in your approach. The entire engagement costs $199. We have been providing this service for three years now and have had the pleasure of working with dozens of residents from IM, peds, FM, psych, and cardiology. We help you learn the art of balancing the personal and the professional. The residency interview is a job interview. The directors and residents want to choose people whom they can envision as colleagues.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in discussing further.

Ben
ps - Our website has a video discussing our approach and the reason we created the service (imgangel dot com).
