'So, why do you want to be a nurse?'


Having asked that question of candidates a thousand times can I say that there is nothing more saddening then seeing them shrug or worse look as though it is not something they have ever though about before clearly surprised to find themselves somewhere other than the Media Studies department. It is of course the easiest question any candidate can be asked, a gift from interviewer to interviewee and a chance the student to tell the truth. A truth one hopes that does not include 'The Cultural Studies dept wouldn't have me and I heard you got a free you get a free watch?'
