    Hello everyone,
    I saw a link someone posted which had posts from different people sharing how they got their first job and how they got it, whether they knew someone who helped them or if they had prior experience e.t.c and it had really good posts and i cant seem to find it does anyone know what i'm talking about and how i can get into the thread. I have an interview in 2 days and i really need help with this coz i saw few tips there on how to answer some questions. Thanks

    i'm so frustrated. i've applied to so many and yet no response. i'm thinking on taking on a more aggressive approach and just going to the hospital and giving the recruiter/manager a 5 minute presentation on why they should hire me. has anyone tried that?
  11. by   Little_Mouse
    Just a suggestion someone shared with me (if anyone hasn't tried it yet): one place to look up hospitals in cailfornia is on wikipedia:

    I would google the hospitals to see if they have a website. If so, I would call HR then ask if they are hiring new grads.

    So far, I've just been getting the same thing from a bunch of hospitals: "Try calling at the end of the year.." or "No, we're not hiring new grads" but some are hiring, so just check. So far I've contacted over 50 hospitals and counting (I've been keeping a list and writing down info that each of them tell me, even if they aren't hiring just to keep track).

    Godspeed, NGs! We'll get there, it's just a matter of when....

    SheliaORN... i think you are looking for the thread CALLING--Those who have jobs- We need you!
    to view that go to Students, Graduate Nurse Forum and you should see that thread there.
