    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Priory Group (Roehampton, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received an email and had to schedule telephone interview. Telephone interview was pretty standard- questions about motivation, what I had done previously, why I wanted to work there. This was followed by panel interview with person from recruitment and three patients. This was more extensive with quite a few situational questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions- Strengths, weaknesses, why do you want to work here?, Situational questions- what would you do if a patient confided in you etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Priory Group in December 2016.

    Interview

    At some point, I sent a private e-mail to a hospital branch saying that I would like very much to volunteer in my free time to gain some extra experience. I got no reply back. 3 months later I got invited to an interview for a proper role. Hurray! (I have to admit that I had taken the liberty to fill in a job application form, even without any role available at that time)

    The interview was held at the hospital branch with the Hospital Director. Very friendly, made me feel at ease. Gave me a full tour of the hospital and introduced me to every staff member in our way giving them time to say a few words to me. The director was super enthusiastic about the hospital and was talking about what improvements they are up to now.

    The interview itself lasted about 40 minutes. By far the best interview, friendly, easy-going, genuine. The questions to me were placed clearly on a matter of how dealing/interacting with a patient in a anthropocentric prospective. Only one question was on how to deal with a patient nutritionally and of course it was a case of a female anorexic patient where I had to describe my first actions towards this case.

    Interview Questions

    • The only dietetic question: Self-wiling admission of female adult anorexic patient. Describe the first stages of the dietary treatment.   Answer Question
