Newly hired new grads in the Bay Area: what made you stand out?

  1. To those who are new grads in the Bay Area and were hired or got into new grad programs, what do you think made you or your resume stand out in hundreds of applications nursing recruiters go through?

    In over a hundred of applications to new grad programs or RN I positions, I have not received a single phone call.
    I have a close to 4.0 GPA, BSN, and BLS & ACLS certified.
    I do not know what else I could do to make my resume stand out.

    The only New Grads that were hired in my facility this year were people who already were techs or CNAs there.

    If you graduated with a BSN, do you put it together with the "RN" after your name? Like Name, RN, BSN?
    I only have RN, but someone told me that it'll help my resume stand out since my name will have the largest font and some recruiters/managers prefer BSN.
