Health Care Aides have one of the most important positions in the workforce. In today’s economy, many people find themselves working at jobs where they earn a decent paycheck, but feel no real sense of accomplishment, and struggle to feel as though they are contributing to the world. Health Care Aides, on the other hand, bring a necessary service to some of society’s most vulnerable citizens, providing not only practical assistance, but also the ability to brighten someone’s day at every turn.This is why, according to HR professionals in the industry, the right attitude is just as important as the proper training and technical knowledge. It is, of course, necessary for HCA graduates entering the workforce to possess a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and demands of the profession. Without this expertise, it is impossible to do the job in a thorough and responsible manner. But when sitting down for a job interview, a smile and a winning attitude are equally as crucial.In my position as Jobs Placement Analyst at ABM College, I frequently speak to those in charge of hiring, and time and again they tell me that a sense of compassion is one of the most necessary ingredients in a winning candidate. If you would like to impress your potential future employer, remember to smile. A pleasant demeanor in a stressful environment, such as a job interview, indicates that a person is able to deal with a challenge, while remaining upbeat. For a person in need of care, this can go a long way towards creating a calm, satisfying relationship. Put yourself in the shoes of somebody requiring assistance in daily life. It can be an emotional and trying experience, and a reassuring smile can make all the difference in the world.At ABM College, we are proud of our HCA program. Not only will you be given top notch technical training, but you will be given job searching skills which assure that you hit the job market with the right strategy-and attitude!
