What if you could see inside a midwifery interview before you actually got to it? See the possible pitfalls and areas to shine?
Wouldn’t it be nice to feel fully prepared and like you can give it your all, not be surprised by interview formats, and know what to bring forward in each of your answers?
I did a ton of interview questions when I was applying, my friends and I used to do them on the bus on the way to college. My parents quizzed me. I did lots of midwifery reading online, in the library, and even with books that I couldn’t afford in Waterstones.
Unfortunately, when it came to my first interview, I got in a tizz and nothing came to the surface right. I have a big streak of introversion and nerves got the better of me. If you’ve ever felt like this, I can relate perfectly.
This is why I wanted to publish a real midwifery interview online. You’ll get to hear a real candidate answering questions on the spot and my feedback to her. This is an hour long interview and feedback session and is the most useful, actionable piece of revision for midwifery interviews that I’ve ever put up.
Thanks so much to this candidate, who is going to remain anonymous (you’ll just see me in the video and hear her audio).
If you’re sceptical about how useful it could be to listen in to someone else’s interview, I’d say that this particular candidate helped us showcase how to get your answers focussed on to one thing: what you can bring to the women.
Watch the whole thing and you can find out how to get a discount if you want an interview with me too!
What did you think? What was your most important piece of learning from this?
Obviously, we covered a huge amount but I couldn't possibly address every candidate's needs in just one video. I do a limited number of interviews for candidates which are worth booking in advance as it can get busy. You can find out more here.
In a practice interview we go through the Unis you're applying to, questions based on your personal statement, any questions or skills that are worrying you, general midwifery knowledge and interview technique.
