SUMMER 2014 | 29 Continued 27. Exclusive of CME, how many weeks of paid vacation are offered annually? 28. Is relocation expense re- imbursement offered? Subjective interview questions to ask 1. What do you like best about working here? 2. What bothers you most about working here? 3. Are your aforementioned views shared by your colleagues? If yes, please elaborate. 4. If you were the sole decision maker in the practice, what would be different and why? Your appearance matters The physicians, and particularly the administrators interviewing you, will draw conclusions about your clinical competence and abil- ity to f t into the organization based upon your appearance. Men should wear dark gray or blue suits, or navy blazers and gray slacks. Shirts should be white, and ties should be silk and can be colorful with a conservative pat- tern. Socks should be dark and long enough to cover your calves when you cross your legs. Shoes should be black (and polished). Women should wear conservative business attire, and makeup should be muted. If your jewelry is particu- larly impressive (such as a very large engagement ring), consider wearing only your band so as not to distract the interviewer (or worse, frustrate the ability to negotiate successfully for higher compensation based on a perception that you are well off).
