    Hi Coriander,

    Do they tell you why you weren't picked? Also, would you happen to know what helps get an interview? do you have related experience or things like ACLS, PALS? just curious to see what my chances are to at least get an interview.
    I was told they had to cut spots. Both times. I don't believe it, but that's what I was told.

    I am currently working with them as a nursing assistant, but that doesn't mean anything. I also have my ACLS and a ton of leadership experience, but although that might help with getting an interview, it hasn't helped in actually landing me the job.

    I've been told my interviewing is great and appropriate, however can't seem to get past the "We've decided to pursue other candidates."

    That must be extremely frustrating. I, too have ACLS. I'm getting PALS in 2 weeks. What units did you apply for?
    One of the things I hate about San Diego is that all of the hospitals are either Sharp or Scripps (with the exception of Palomar, Tricity, and Paradise Valley which are all tiny). How are we supposed to get experience if no one hires us?

    I've tried some other, alternative routes such as LTAC to no avail also. What to do...how many times can a snow ball melt?

    did your resume formatting get messed up when uploading and previewing the document?

    I applied too, but I am in the Bay Area, graduating in December. I wonder when we will get our emails.

    Sharp usually works quickly. We should start receiving phone calls within a couple of weeks with phone interviews scheduled soon after that. That has been the norm, but of course it could be different this time around.

    Yes, the formatting is very messed up when uploading your resume onto the form, and nothing you do will fix that (I've tried lol).

    You're welcome. I do hope something positive happens this time around. Just "celebrated" six months of job hunting.
