      Patient Care Coordinator

      I have an interview in a few days for HR Assistant at a home care agency. Any tips or advice on what they would ask me? (no experience btw)



      Hi everyone, I’m nearing the end of the hiring process with two jobs and I’ve received an offer from one. I’ve been trying to hold out for the other one but at this point, I need to accept an offer if I have it. Any advice on how to professionally reach out one last time to try and get answers on the status of a hiring decision?
