Audiology Graduates Need to Read These Top Tips

How do you become an Audiologist?

Audiologists need to have completed a Master of Clinical Audiology, which is a course available at Flinders University, Melbourne University, Macquarie University, the University of Western Australia and the University of Queensland. After studying for 2 years full-time, you can start your career, which may include some work experience. However you reach your first audiology job, you can be sure of one thing: you’ll be interviewed before taking on your first audiology role. So what do you need to know for your interview?
Interview questions
 
Your interviewer will typically ask you a selection of questions that relate to you personally to begin with. You can expect questions such as:
  • Why did you choose a career in Audiology?
  • What can you bring to a team?
  • What are your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to working?
 
As well as learning about your personality and work ethics, your interviewer will also need to find out if you’re knowledgeable enough for the role. They may ask you questions such as:
  • Walk me through your process for initially examining patients
  • What type of rehabilitation training do you most enjoy and consider yourself best at?
  • What age group do you prefer working with and why?

What to wear

As with any interview, you must make yourself look presentable and ensure excellent levels of hygiene. Remember that your interviewer will judge you on your personal presentation from the moment they meet you. Wear smart clothes and keep your hair neat and tidy. 

Use positive body language

It may be silent but your body language speaks volumes! Your interviewer will judge you on your body language as this gives them an idea of you as a person. Avoid the following:
  • Slouching
  • Touching your face
  • Crossing your arms
  • Drumming your fingers
  • Fidgeting
  • Looking down

Research the organisation

Make sure you know everything there is to know about the organisation you are interviewing with as this will prepare you for any curve ball questions about the facility, showing your competency for retaining important information and impressing your interviewer(s).
