I just need to vent! I am graduating in May and therefore have started my quest for that unicorn of the nursing world: The New Grad Job. In my search I am using engines such as Indeed, Monster, etc. One would think that by using terms such as "New Grad" or "graduate" RN you might be able to quickly identify the jobs for which we are actually WANTED. Unfortunately, the people who are writing the job postings all seem to think it necessary to state "Not appropriate for new grads" or "unable to accommodate new grads at this time". WHY do they do this to us? If they simply left it to something like "only accepting applications from RNs with a minimum of 1-2 years experience" or something to that effect it would never come up in my search. If it did somehow come up, I am an intelligent person and I could read the description and quickly rule this position out! As they are all written I end up getting multiple alerts in my inbox stating "20 New Grad Job LIstings!" only to read them and find out that in reality they specifically DO NOT WANT ME! Talk about disheartening. GRRRR.
Ok. I feel better now. Thank you for listening.
