Does your work history under your ss# show terminations? I was hired within a teaching hospital as a new grad, during my orientation my preceptor was unorganized and did not have a routine. She often appeared overwhelmed. I tried to understand her frustrations as well as adjust to her routine. I requested another preceptor and I was told there was not any more staff at the time, I was told I needed to remember every thing I was told and I should not still be referring to my notes. I asked to be transferred to another floor instead I was told it's not working out and terminated. Now I'm having a hard time finding a job as a new grad. I feel like I have wasted four years of nursing school because I can't find a job that I would like to work. Does your work history under your ss# show terminations?
I'm confused as to why you would think your SSN would indicate HOW you left a job...?? When you are paid legally by an employer, Social Security funds are taken out of your paycheck. During times of employment, there are SS payments made. Period.
Background checks will no doubt turn up all kinds of interesting things, but it's not going to be your social security payments that will say you got fired....that will be from another source.
On another note, I found it interesting that in your description of the events leading up to your termination, at no point do you take any responsibility for it---any of it. It was all your preceptor's fault, according to you. That doesn't sound right; even if your preceptor wasn't the best, surely you can't expect the next job to believe you were terrific, just railroaded out?
How are you going to approach the question when you are asked "what did you learn from your experience at XYZ Hospital? What would you do differently?" Be prepared to look deep and answer honestly, with what really went into that termination decision. And the answer can't be "it was the preceptor's fault all the way".
