    I know what you mean, I can't find one here in New York. How long have you been looking? I have been looking since March 2010 with no success. I don't know what else to do.

    I feel your pain, its so disheartening. The economy is to blame. Right now we should be choosing from an array of offers instead of still searching. How many places have you applied??

    I know you're frustrated but that's really not that long. Keep your chin up, use the board for tips on your hunt, keep yourself busy and on a schedule. Good luck to you!

    I have been looking in The DC/MD/VA since last month! With no interviews yet! I have applied to nearly every hospital within a 45 mile radius! I just try to remember to constantly re-check hospital sites just in case new jobs have been posted!

    I have been doing the same as well applying to the tristate area (NY/NJ/CT). I had about three interviews so far but only with nursing homes. Something will come through for us pretty soon, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for us. Good luck and keep me posted!!

    I had an interview guys yesterday. I'm not even sure if I did good, all my answers kinda sucks i think. Oh well next time I'm going to make sure that I'm well prepared. I didn't have enough time to prepare because the interview was sudden and unexpected.

    My first interview, my answers were MEH and by the 3rd I was feeling pretty polished. Practice definitely makes a difference! See if you can get a friend to role play an interview with you and look online for common interview questions.
