The PassportUSA international recruitment team is excited to be conducting in-person nurse interviews in the Philippines this October. The staff at Health Carousel Philippines will be scheduling candidates for the interviews. If you are selected and scheduled for an in-person interview with our team in Manila or Cebu, here’s a sneak peek at what to expect:
Date and time
Nurse interviews will be conducted in Manila at the Health Carousel Philippines office, 8th floor, The JMT Corporate Condominium, ADB Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City from October 9 to October 11. There will be two sessions per day (morning and afternoon). Interviews will be conducted in Cebu on October 12 and October 13 at the Radisson Blu Cebu, Sergio Osmeña Boulevard, 6000, Pope John Paul II Avenue, Cebu City; there will again be two sessions per day (morning and afternoon). The Health Carousel Philippines office will be confirming the date and time of your interview.
What should I bring to the interview?
You are not required to bring anything to the interview, but it is recommended that you have an updated résumé on hand.
How should I dress?
If you are coming to the interview from or on your way to a shift at a medical facility, scrubs are certainly acceptable. Otherwise, please wear business casual attire.
What will the interview format look like?
Each interview will be conducted in a one-on-one format with either Emal Hassan or Sicari Franklin (see bios below). The interviews will last 10-20 minutes.
What are the interviewers looking for?
The PassportUSA team will be looking for a few different things during your interview. Some of these include (but are not limited to):
- When you passed your NCLEX examination (or when you plan on taking the exam if you are a recent nursing school graduate eligible for our Aspire program).
- Your communications skills.
- Your clinical skills. (If you are not currently working at a healthcare facility, why?)
- Your attitude.
How long after the nurse interviews should I expect to hear from PassportUSA?
The PassportUSA team asks that you please be prepared to accept a position on the spot. While the timing of offers can vary, our staff typically prefers to move through the process quickly once a qualified candidate is identified.
