"When we are prescreening and actively interviewing prospective candidates for end of life care the most important statements that a candidate will share is:

  • Their ability to provide patient care in a home environment.
  • Ability to work through difficult situations with the patient, caregivers, family members.
  • Most importantly, compassion and patience at a very vulnerable time for patients and loved ones.”

Terry Mort

Talent Acquisition Manager
VITAS Healthcare

“Employees who take the initiative to find solutions to problems is a highly desirable characteristic for me. If you hit upon a roadblock or problem do you seek solutions or give up? Do you have the judgment to know whether the solution is something you should apply directly, or run by your supervisor first? In nonprofit work, having people who can think about solving the problem whether it is meta-issues like equity in health care or education, or how to solve a minor tech problem with an app, means they are thinking creatively and have passion about moving forward to get work done.”

Jennifer Dhillon

Bounce Back Generation, Inc.

“Hire character, train skill.”
Peter Schultz

“Longevity in their current and previous employers.”
Leeilani Patacsil, BSN, MBA

“Put your good where it will do the most!”

Executive Director, Professional Excellence
NCAL Patient Care Services and Kaiser Permanente (KP) Scholars Academy

“In healthcare, what every employer loves to see in a job applicant or employee is someone who exemplifies compassion and empathy…not just with patients but with providers and staff as well. The best Rx to make anyone feel better is to let them know you care.”
