Today almost all of the registered dieticians will have their Master’s degrees. In the competitive environment of today’s healthcare industry, it can be challenging to stand out from the crowd. If you are applying for roles that you think you will be successful at, your first point of concern should be facing the interview in the right manner. If you do not, you will be disappointed. Always know that there are hundreds of candidates out there who will be around to take the position if you fail. Therefore, here are some tips that will help you face an interview successfully and possibly land your dream job.

Measure Your Accomplishments Correctly

Your resume would be the place where you are able to showcase all that you have done and accomplished. This should give the potential employers a good summary of you educational and professional backgrounds. If you include numbers in your experience it will show off your business chops even better. For example you could say that you managed a food budget of a particular number (give the number) for a school in your city, if you actually have that experience. If you want to secure a dietitian job, you need to be honest and professional and try to describe your achievements with hard data that will impress the interview panel.

Always Know What You Should Expect

When you get a call asking you to come in for an interview, ask that HR person or hiring manager, whatever you need to clarify about the interview. You should know everything from the right location and parking spaces (which is really important if you do not want to get lost and waste your time on the road), the names of those who you will be meeting or whom you should ask for at the reception and also if you should carry any documents or such specific thing for the interview. Some of the more modern interviews now will include personality and writing tests as well as going out to have lunch with your possible future co-workers. So go ready for all of these situations.

Dress for Success Always

It doesn’t matter how big or small the company is with whom you are having the interview, you should still go looking the part of a professional dietician. Your first impression has to be strong and positive and going there looking like you just got out of bed, or are going on a hike, or had a water cut at home will not help you. On the day before your interview, make sure that your clothes are ironed and ready to go. Wake up early, dress well. Be well-groomed and go looking like a professional.

Bring Your Props

As a dietician student or a recent graduate even, you are sure to have created materials, submitted a lot of research and even delivered presentations. These materials will make for excellent talking points in your interview. If you have anything that you know you can show off and with the right reasons, you should make use of them.
