    Very difficult to get full time jobs or part time jobs. Seems most jobs offered are Per diem <24hrs per month in some hospitals

    Hy cheryllun, I'm sorry to hear that. Sounds like a really frustrating situation!

    As the situation for you hasn't changed despite your move, I would suggest having a real hard look at your rsum and re evaluating the way you are applying/making initial contact. Employers make quick judgements on your rsum/cover letter and small details make the difference between ending up in the "pass" pile, and the "follow up" pile.

    Is your rsum professional, error free, ordered logically? Are you using a standard font and formatting? Does your rsum describe how you went above and beyond in previous roles, or does it just list job duties? Employers want to know what you can do for them. Show them where and how you went above and beyond.

    How are you laying out your cover letter? Are you responding directly to the requirements listed in the job posting? Here is a quick format you can use for your cover letter:

    Paragraph 1
    -introduce yourself, mention specific job you are applying for, and state what attachments (your rsum) you have included for their review.

    Paragraph 2
    Sell Yourself In Relation To The Job
    -you should start off by writing about why you are interested in this job, and why you would be a good fit. Refer back to the posting and let them know that you have experience in/are good at whatever they require. Don't include extraneous information, focus on the requirements in the posting. Don't regurgitate your resume.

    Paragraph 3
    Thank them for taking the time to review your material, give your contact info and the best time to reach you (best to keep that as broad as possible), and write that you look forward to speaking to them in further detail about the position. (Also - is your vmail message professional sounding?)

    It's important to keep your cover letter as succinct as possible. It should never be more than 1/2 page at 11-12pt font, especially since you don't have a large experience base at the moment. This is the first thing that employers see, make sure it's stellar!

    Hope this helps! good luck!

    I recently passed my nclex two weeks ago...I have since then "hit the ground running" when it comes to applying to jobs..all I keep hearing and seeing is of how difficult it is to find a hospital job in Miami. specially since its the end if the year... I have been looking into home health...but I am worried that it will not count as experience if I ever want to move out o home health and into my niche of L&D. Any comments?

    How was your nclex experience? I'm taking mine on the 17th and I'm so nervous. .I still don't feel prepared. .
