New CNA here in NYC! I need a job!!

  1. 0
    Oh my god, why is getting job so hard as a CNA here?
    I have no experience but all LTC seems like they want experienced CNA!
    And I've heard that it is really hard to get a job in hospital in nyc unless you know somebody there.Can anyone give me advice based upon your experience?

    What should I do?

    Should I work as a cashier while I volunteer in LTC or a hospital?
    Should I just knock the door in LTC and tell them I need a job?
    Is there any fine agency that will give me a job?

    I will be so grateful is someone give me advice!!!

    Go to an agency to gain experience but be prepared to start with low salary

    Even though some places say they rather have experiance, go to those places and apply anyway.. if they give you an interview and like you they might hire you. Also try Home Care they have CNA jobs.. Hospice sometimes, I mentioned in a previous post if there is a vets home/hospital around you they might hire. Some retirment homes. Just some places to think about then just LTC and hospitals

    I agree with the person above who said go ahead and apply. I would make sure to bring a resume and cover letter along with the application...and dress nicely! That is what I did and was hired to the first place I applied and at the time I hadn't even taken my skills exam. Not saying I'm anything special, just trying to give some encouragement and advice.
