Case Study 1
The preparation that should be made for an interview with a lead radiology technician for PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) and ultrasound section would involve conducting a job analysis that would identify background information, position description, and responsibilities of the expected applicant. According to Buchbinder and Shanks (2007), position descriptions are necessary to define the required knowledge, skills, responsibilities, training, experience, certification or licensure from the applicants. These descriptions are important for the interviewer to identify the applicant’s previous duties relating to PACS and an ultrasound position.
Job descriptions allows the expected applicant to evaluate themselves on how will they fit the responsibilities for PACS lead radiology technician and the ultrasound position. Buchbinder and Shanks (2007), illustrates an example that contains important information included on position descriptions that would help applicants evaluate themselves to see whether they fit the position. For example, an applicant can determine whether or not they fit the job description by reviewing the requirements of the position as it relates to the training and knowledge they have obtained. An applicant for the PACS position should know about computer software and hardware, and an applicant for the ultrasound section should know how to operate the ultrasound equipment. Position descriptions would help the interviewer identify which applicant reveals the most training and knowledge for the PACS and ultrasound position.
The information I would expect to see on the application would include the name of the applying position, previous jobs and references, skills relating to the job, and training for a lead radiology technician for PACS and the ultrasound position.
