Physical therapy interview questions vary from one institution to another. It is difficult to assume which specific questions you can expect during your interview.
However, there are some things you can do to help prepare yourself for the interview process.
Below we have some great tips to guide you through your next interview.
For a great opportunity to practice, make an appointment at your university's career center. Many offer practice interviews with a career counselor and some will even videotape your interview.
The counselor can run through a typical interview with you and later critique your strengths and weaknesses, right down to the handshake.
If the interview was captured on video, you then have an opportunity to watch yourself in action. The video doesn't lie and you may be surprised by your performance.
The skills you gain from a practice interview can also prove useful for future job interviews.
Having your own questions may also help you stand out in a pool of applicants.
These specific examples help to give the interviewer an insight into some of the personal, academic, or employment experiences you possess.
Be sure to dress in a manner appropriate for an interview meaning dress pants/slacks, clean shoes, and a nice shirt.
A simple handshake can also tell a lot about you. A nice firm handshake exudes self confidence while a weak one may leave the opposite impression.
Refrain from the "um's" and other repetitive words that you may have a tendency to interject when speaking. Clear and concise answers are recommended for any interview situation.
Keep in mind that each interview situation is different and the questions you are actually asked may require a multi-faceted answer. So not only do you have to answer a particular question, you may have to provide specific examples or scenarios.
