Don't get too excited.
The person interviewing me did not read my resume or application until I sat down for the interview. He asked a few irrelevant questions and then asked what job I had applied for.
"Nurse to review medical records for litigation," I answered.
"Is that what the ad said? I didn't even read it," he said. He thought for a moment and then said, "I think a trauma nurse would be best. Are you a trauma nurse?"
"No," I responded. Reading my resume had not helped him gauge who I was. "My experience is in psychiatry and nursing home care. I took care of some very sick people in the nursing home."
I have no idea how to save an interview.
"Well, we mostly handle cases about orthopedic surgery and delivering babies," he said.
"So why do you need a trauma nurse?" I asked.
"Because trauma nurses do everything," he answered, surprised that he had to explain to a nurse what nurses do.
"No," I decided to risk it. "Trauma nurses do trauma. They don't do surgery and they don't deliver babies."
He just sat there.
"May I ask," I continued, "How many trauma nurses applied for this position?"
"None," he answered. "I interviewed one other person so far. It turns out she isn't even a nurse." He looked at me. "Are you really a nurse?" he asked.
"I am," I answered and ended the interview.
I guess that there are other places also disorganized and inefficient just like my current job.
