Thumbs up Job Interview

Had an email today offering me an interview for the hospitals in Taupo and Rotorua

I'm hugely nervous, Taupo is pretty much my dream job, so much that I haven't even really looked into the Rotorua option! Never had 'do' a telephone job interview before either so who knows how that'll go.

I need to have a job offer before I can go ahead with my visa application so fingers crossed that this one goes well

look on the bright side, you get to do the interview laid on the sofa in jeans and T shirt, they cant see you sweating and you could get some collegues round to help with any awkward questions.

You mean "phone a friend" or "ask the audience"

Dont mind at all, the interview is for a midwife post (so I doubt I'll be being your boss any time soon )
What do you think of the hospital in Rotorua? I've really only looked into the Taupo option but I know I'm interviewing for both and think its more likely I'll get offered Rotorua if anything.

Mrs G here- I know of a few colleagues here who were phone interviewed and they were very 'gentle' I was interviewed in UK (by our local DON) and again was probably one of the easiest I've had in my career they want to know more about you and how you'll settle etc - keep in mind they want/need you as a shortage here. GOOD LUCK

What do you think of the hospital in Rotorua? I've really only looked into the Taupo option but I know I'm interviewing for both and think its more likely I'll get offered Rotorua if anything.
The hospital overlooks the lake with lovely views from most windows. At the moment we are in the middle of getting a new hospital built
Will be ready to move into in 2 years I am not a midwife so cant really comment on that department but I really enjoy my job and everyone is so friendly staff and patients. Its quite a small hospital and the new one is not going to be much bigger. (Small but perfectly formed!) Rotorua is a lovely place to live with loads to do and lots to see. We are really happy we moved here and feel really settled.
Dont know anything about Taupo sorry.
Feel free to ask any more questions and I will try to answer.
Good Luck with your interview, I had a phone interview too and it was very relaxed and felt informal, not like I was at an interview at all!
