Mayo Clinic and Shands: Jacksonville

  1. Hey guys, I am possibly relocating to Jacksonville and applied for several positions at Mayo Clinic and Shands (really want mayo) but I have not heard a peep from either organization. I applied 2-3 weeks ago, does anyone know how long it may take to hear from them. I have alot of experience and think I at least deserve an interview

    I haven't had any personal experience with either one but friends that have applied there have told me that they take a super long time. I would call and see. Jobs are hard to come by in Jax.

    thanks for the heads up--that's weird, why do they post these jobs but then take forever to fill them?

    I know that Shands is not going to be hiring much this summer. They are closing a unit for remodeling so they will have an entire floor floating around. Mayo is so hard to get into. You usually have to know someone to get in there. We have a bunch of hospitals around Jacksonville. What part of town are you in?

    Im currently in Cleveland, fam lives in Jacksonville and i want to relocate, i cant believe that about those hospitals, i have 4 years of ICU experience at a huge, busy teaching hospital, shouldn't cross my fingers?

    I would simply get my foot in the door of any hospital here first and then work on transitioning to Shands or Mayo. There are lots of hospitals here.... although you mention you're in Cleveland, where do you want to be in Jax? Jax is a LARGE city geographically and you may want to take commuting (cost of gas....traffic is a joke) into consideration.

    What floor is this? I work at Shands and our unit is actively interviewing/hiring for nurses. We dont have many positions available, but we've hired two nurses in the past two months.

    Have you tried speaking to the hiring manager at each hospital? I would call the hospital and speak to some one in HR to see who is doing the hiring.

    Specialty, Orange Park, Baptist, and Brooks. Not too sure if they are hiring, but their websites will tell you more. =)
