No matter what stage you are at with your dietetic career, applying for positions, addressing criteria and interviewing never feels easy. Writing your application and facing a panel of interviewers requires a different set of skills to how we perform everyday and because we don’t do this regularly (thank goodness), it can be tricky to master. Rhiannon Barnes is a dietitian that has read more than 5000 applications, interviewed hundreds of professionals (not just dietitians!) and written even more interview questions with corresponding positive indicators to recruit the right person, for the right job!
