Bringing your spouse shows the pro- spective employer that you are thoughtfully considering the opportunity and are wise enough to know that more goes into the decision of where you will prac- tice than your own comfort. In fact, employers recognize that relocating to another part of the country is a family deci- sion and may request that your spouse accompany you to dine with decision makers so everyone can collectively assess whether it would be a good f t. Your spouse, however, should avoid taking charge of the interview or becom- ing an overly aggressive advocate. Questions you should be prepared to answer Before an interview, give thought to how you'll answer some com- mon interview questions: 1. Tell me about yourself. 2. Why did you choose to go into medicine? 3. What are you looking for in your next practice? 4. Why are you changing jobs? 5. Why did you choose our practice location? 6. What level of compensa- tion do you require? 7. What are your long-term professional goals? 8. Why do you want to work with us? 9. What do you feel you can bring to the group? 10. Can you describe your ap- proach to medicine and practice philosophy? 11. Ideally, how many patients would you see in the office daily? 12. On average, how long do you spend with each pa- tient in the office? 13. What are your strongest clinical areas? Why are you of that opinion? 14. What do your patients like most about you? 15. What do your patients like least about you? 16. What do you feel are the most important contributions you have made to your former or current practice or hospital?
