10 rules for success in interviews -

1. believe in yourself. If you have been shortlisted it means you have as good a
chance as anhyone else shortlisted for the interview to get the job.

2. Sit and visualise - goign in for the interview, sitting well, maintaining
good eye contact, answering the question to the point, finshing and gettng the
job. Do this many times.

3. Stay relaxed. Tell yourself this is not the end or finale of anything.
Breathe deeply as you wait to go in.

4. Answer questiions to the point. If you dont know, say you dont know.

5. Try not to exceed 1 minute for any answer.

6.try to answer most questions in less than 5 sentences. Never exceed 10

7. Speak slowly , loudly , clearly

8. Maintain good eye contact and smile and appear friendly

9.Give them what they want - eg if there is a case scenario - say the
differetial diagnosis and ABC of resus first - so they are reassured of your
clinical knowledge.

10 .when asked to go thru your CV - give breadth rather than depth - so cover
briefly your India experience in 1 or 2 sentences (eg after graduation, I
completed a 3 year residency programme in anaesthesia from a prestigious
university hospital in India ) , then your acclimitisation with NHS ( your
friend may need to say that he knows about NHS but if appointed he is willing to
join a few weeks early to get acquainted), your clinical skills - what you can
do - eg assess sick patients, carry out common procedures etc, your career aim
and why this job in this hospital is the right one for you, your personality,
your strong points - using buzz words such as good communicator, team worker,
know your limitations etc
