Hey ya'll! I'm up late, just got off of work actually, and was looking for new grad CNA jobs. I've been pushing out cover-letters, resumes, job apps, and letters of recommendation for the past two weeks now and have had no luck in nabbing a job. I typically apply as SNFs and Assisted-living facilities because I KNOW a hospital wouldn't hire a new grad CNA. I live in Oakland, CA and am really starting to feel discouraged with the lack of CNA job opportunity for new grads around here.
I was wondering if anyone was in my area and knew of some staffing agencies or nursing-homes that would work with me? I've been looking on Craigslist and have been finding a lot of caregiver jobs, but not many CNA jobs that don't require 1-2 years of experience (which I obviously don't have!). The convalescent home I did my clinicals at was beyond depressing and I reeeaaaallly don't want to work there! ANYONE who has ANY tips for this ambitious, ready-to-work CNA PLEASE leave me your advice!
Thanks in advance,
