Betti Simon/Medicolegal PA for Orthopaedic Surgeons/ East Midlands Orthopaedics
I am from Hungary and got my first job in the UK as a medical secretary when I was 26. I was quite nervous to attend an interview at the NHS and thought that I would never get the position. I had to attend a panel interview and there were two rounds but I was successful and it was the best day of my life when I got the call that I was accepted!
I would advise to my teenage self to have more confidence and believe in myself. I never had a lot of confidence as a teenager, wish I could have known then, that I will live in a different country as an adult and learn the language, manage to land the job that I enjoy and I will work with such interesting people.
