After actively seeking job leads, I interviewed with a healthcare institution set up by a job agency. The interview was virtual, and it went great. I left knowing that I did a great interview. I was so excited I reached out to the recruiter and told them how I did. On a scale of 0-10, I told them I would rate the interview a 10. The recruiter shared my excitement as well. She said she would reach out to the person who interviewed me to follow up. Unfortunately, later that day, I received an email from my recruiter saying that I did not get a job offer. The person words were, "I needed someone with more experience using Epic."

For all my individuals who work in healthcare or do non-clinical work should know about Epic. When the interviewer asked me if I had experience using Live Epic, I told them, "yes" I have used Epic but not the live version. My previous company had employees access it through a link on the computer. It was already downloaded. When I told the interviewer that, they didn't seem concerned. So, I thought that it was okay that I was honest. Because I have experience with the platform. So why did they not want to hire me because I didn't use the live version? I have no clue. At any point, after I told the interviewer about my experience with Epic, they should have stated their concerns or asked for clarification of my using the software. Instead, they just assumed the access link didn't work the same way the Live version does. This was a huge letdown, and I'm very conflicted about whether I should have just said yes and not given the interviewer unnecessary details. Because it cost me the job. #interview #advice #followup #healthcare #hr #jobsearch #remote #jobagency #staffingagency #unemployed #nonclinical #denial #refusal #interviewmistakes

Seems like they wanted someone who could hit the ground running.Not interested in training. You did the right thing telling the truth, would have been awful if they had to let you go for not being truthful or under qualified.

you were told the very next day that you weren't being considered

That never happens with me I just never hear from them again after wasting my time jumping through hoops, sending added documents they demand, which I've done recently with a local county position that I'm overqualified for. It was a 3 part interview and I aced 1st 2 parts on my skills I was told so by the people that conducted the interview the last part was about diversity and a zoom call and I could tell that I wasn't who they wanted. They told me I would hear back within a couple of weeks and its now been almost a month with no word or email.

You should have said something like, "Yes, I used it regularly at XYZ Company and am very proficient." You minimized your experience by saying, "But not the live version," which created doubt in the interviewer.

It is unfortunate that searching for employment has left many of us vulnerable to these scammers. I have recently bee asked to down low an app called wire secure messenger. I am not sure why there is need for this app, when team and zoom are available. So, there is a great need to Stay alert !

Same here. I interviewed for a position I previously held. I used to train new employees by using Epic. I was the go-to person when Epic(Health Connect) was down. My previous supervisors and managers were clueless when there was downtime or when problems occur. They would call me to fix the problems. So I was surprised when they didn't rehire me back since I left on good terms.
