Collaborative environment
that I believe I can thrive in
What are your weaknesses?
4.
Have not yet had the opportunity to put them to use in real-world situations, that is, outside of coursework
Used to working independently
Good quantitative skills, but...
(Can rephrased as "areas of development")
I take pride in working independently, and that's the type of work environment that I am accustomed to.

It may take some getting used to working in a more collaborative environment, but I look forward to the change.
Perfectionist writer
I take pride in my writing, and am a perfectionist when it comes to drafting scientific papers.

So I tend to pick over the details, as opposed to releasing a first rough draft as soon as possible.
5.
Opportunity to
contribute
to
patient-centered outcomes
research, which I am passionate about
Gain
experience with
large-scale patient databases
What are you hoping to gain from this job?
6.
My advisor and I had initially planned to have the IT department extract medical chart data for my master's thesis. IT was unable to complete this request, and so at the last minute I had to switch tracks for my thesis.

Because of this unusual situation, I put all of my time and effort into thesis writing for three months, postponing my job search.
Usually M.S. graduates will already have a job lined up... why is this not the case for you?
7.

Based on (1) my clinical research experience, (2) my writing and analytical skills, (3) my willingness to learn as demonstrated by my academic achievements, (4) and my ability to work both independently and collaboratively in a competitive work environment, I believe that I would be a good fit for this position.
Why should we hire you?
You should hire me because I am confident that I could contribute high-caliber work to Dr. Chung's research group.

Honors:
Don't just say you'll follow up; do it!
A week after receipt of resume is typical.
After you send out a resume, unless it is made very clear there is to be no follow-up from candidates, a phone call or email to confirm receipt is professional.
It communicates attention to detail and follow-through.
Many people will tell you a phone call is better than an email or vice versa. Do what comes natural to you.
The advantage of making a phone call is that it is an opportunity for you to show that you are personable, articulate, and quick-thinking.

Tip on decisiveness:
"Indecisiveness does not put forth a willing attitude - it just looks like a lack of focus.
It's quite obvious that you can't go for what you want if you don't know what it is."
Just as you need to know exactly what position you're interested in when going on an official interview, you need to know exactly what information you want to acquire when going on an informational interview.
You don't want to be asked what position you seek and answer with 'Anything you have available.'
Requesting an informational interview:
Through a phone call (or letter if necessary), communicate the following:

You only want 30 minutes at most of their time
You're not asking for a job
You're contacting them because you respect their advice
Leadership
Organization
Music
Children's ministries
Volunteer activites:
Sample follow-up to a phone interview:
Thank you for taking the time to speak with me on the phone today about the sales position. I feel I understand more about your company and the position for which I've applied. I would love to schedule a personal interview with you to further discuss my qualifications for the job. I look forward to hearing from you."
8.
What values have you formed as a result of your early family background?
I was raised in a very loving, close-knit family environment, as the oldest of six children. Responsibility, compassion, and faith... the importance of these values was impressed on us from an early age, and I hold to this.
This allowed me to confirm that the samples were being collected on time and that, if there were any troubling issues, they were resolved promptly.
9.
I was told that, even when studies are running smoothly, it's important to keep in close contact with the healthcare providers and staff involved in the studies. So I made it a point to prioritize either daily or weekly contact, as appropriate, with the nurses responsible for collecting study samples.
What is the best piece of constructive criticism you've received from a boss? Why did you get it, and how did you respond?
Phone calls
Cover letters
* You can give the specifics of how you know about the person success. Did you hear a lecture he gave? Did you read an article he wrote? Are you familiar with his work from some other source?
Hello {insert Mr. or Mrs. Last Name}, my name is _______.

Tip:
To secure a meeting, ask: Could I see you tomorrow at 9 am, or would 3 pm work better?

"First of all, I am
hard-working
,
self-motivated
,
committed
, and
driven
: I often put in my own time and stay late in order to ensure that upcoming deadlines are met. I'm a
team player

(transition phrase 1):
"And here in my background is where these
features have been benefits
to the people that I have worked for: I recently completed a an
intensive, one-year position as a research coordinator
conducting clinical trials. I am also a
recent Master's graduate
in population health sciences.

Phrase 2:
"My most recent job relevant to this position was at the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I functioned for them in the capacity of a research coordinator, working on multiple projects from start to finish. Depending on where we were in the project, my day-to-day duties included grant writing, grant submission, verifying that human subjects protection regulations were met, obtaining IRB approval, writing and then carrying out standard operating procedures, conducting study visits with patients, collecting data through surveys and biological samples, maintaining study databases, and performing preliminary analysis. I loved that job and that department - the research team was excellent - but I ultimately left on good terms when the one-year position concluded.

"And before that, I was at the Department of Pharmacy, also at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There, I functioned in the capacity of a student researcher, where I restructured a database for an interventional study on obestiy, physical activity, and onset of Type II diabetes among children in an underpriveleged minority community. I prepared the data for later analysis in SAS, and provided study personnel with basic instruction in Excel.

This job also required me to stay highly organized; I was responsible for overseeing weekly onsite intervention activities, and maintaining regular communication with study participants to decrease chances of losses to follow-up. I loved that job, and my employer, and ultimately left when the study reached its seasonal conclusion.

(transition phrase 2): "Now, tell me, Dr. _________, how does what I have to offer stack up with what you're looking for?"

"Based on what we have discussed here, Dr. __________, my
[background, experience, or potential, tailored to what the interviewer has just explained that they want in a hire]
makes this a good fit for both of us. What do I need to do to get the job?"
(Then be quiet and don't say a word).
