Interviewing Resources

At IU Health, we utilize virtual and in-person interviews. Both approaches have a variety of benefits, allowing for flexibility as well as an opportunity for candidates to see the work environment. Below you'll find helpful resources as you prepare for your upcoming interview with IU Health.

Onsite Interviews

In-person interviews allow candidates to get a clearer picture of the work environment, day-to-day responsibilities and team culture. Rest assured, IU Health is taking the necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of our patients, team members and guests. When preparing for an onsite interview, we expect candidates to follow COVID-19 safety protocols, including:

  • Wearing a mask at all times
  • Answering in the negative to all COVID-19 screening questions
  • Practicing hand hygiene
  • Maintaining social distancing

If there are additional COVID-19 protocols at the facility where you are interviewing, the hiring leader will let you know when they schedule your interview.

Making a great first impression is important. Be sure you dress professionally, are on time or early and bring copies of your resume. We understand that interviewing while wearing masks can make it difficult to detect facial expressions, but a few tips can help. 

  • Choose the right mask: make sure your mask fits snugly and is comfortable so you aren't distracted by having to adjust it.
  • Use body language: your hands, eyes and eyebrows are helpful tools to convey body language. The interviewer may not be able to see your mouth, but they can see your smile in your eyes!
  • Keep your voice at a normal tone: it is tempting to raise your voice while wearing a mask, but it can be more helpful to slow down your speech instead. Many people subconsciously read lips, so slowing down can help the interviewer process what you are saying when your lips are hidden behind a mask.
  • Don't be afraid to ask: if you're having trouble hearing or understanding your interviewer from behind their mask, don't be afraid to let them know.

Virtual Interviews

While we begin to host more in-person interviews, many interviews will still be held virtually for the forseeable future.

When preparing for a virtual interview, there are many things you can do to make a great first impression, including setting up your computer or device in a well-lit room, dressing professionally, removing clutter from the background and more.
