1. CALL FOR YOURSELF: If you are interested in a job, call the recruiter yourself. If your spouse calls, it shows the recruiter that you are not actually interested. You should, however, bring your family with you to the interviewing city and introduce them to your prospective employer. This shows that you are serious about the job.
2. DUE DILIGENCE: Fill out all of the paperwork given to you by your potential employer quickly and accurately. Be sure to explain any potential issues, such as time lapses in your C.V. or if you have ever been named in a malpractice suit. The employer will be a lot happier if things are disclosed earlier rather than later, and the employer has many resources to discover information about you.
3. SHOW YOUR INTEREST: Do your homework on the community in which you are interviewing: know the Fortune 500 industries, top employers, ask about the education in both private and public sectors, ask about recreation and sports, and even ask about diversity of cultures, restaurants and grocery shopping, etc. This will further show your interest.
4. PLAN FOR DELAYS: If you get/accept a position, know that it can take 60-90 days to get all of your provider numbers from insurance companies, so plan the timing of your interviews accordingly.
5. BE GRACIOUS: Send thank you notes to anyone who assisted you in the interview process. This is a wonderful and professional way to thank them for giving you the opportunity to interview.
