I graduated NUR school May this year and got my license July. Since I have been looking for jobs endlessly with no luck! Here in Miami it is awful for new RNs to get your foot in the door (being that hospitals require 1-2yrs of experience!)
Until now I am getting calls for interviews!! Late Oct I got a call from my dream hospital to interview with them. I was so nervous for the interview. Once the day came to interview, I set aside all nervousness, went in and did my thing. I got the job! 3 weeks later the recruiter calls me with bad news saying the positions were cancelled!!!!! whhaaattt??? I couldn't believe it! That was very unprofessional from the hospital's part. I was sooooo depressed bc all my friends and family new I had FINALLY gotten a job. I was embarrassed but like my friend said to me "it is something out of my control."
With my wounded heart I found the strength to start looking for other jobs (even though I knew there was nothing here in Miami, I still kept looking) and found a GN residency program at UM! I was excited!! I did my best to speak with recruiter. I wrote emails, called, and finally met her when I went to drop of required documents for this program. She told me they give priority to their scholars (I am not a UM scholar
) and that their program usually opens March and August and that it was weird administration opened a program for January. I automatically felt lucky.
Anyways I got a call from UM asking if I wanted to interview and of course I said yes. And I interview next week. The lady told me she would send me an email with all the information I need to know in regards the interview. Once I opened the email information states to bring 10 COPIES OF MY COVER LETTER AND RESUME FOR PANEL MEMBERS ALL DIRECTORS OF NURSING!!!!!!!!! whhhaaattt????? a 10 panel interview????????????
I am extremely nervous!!!
Has anyone applied to this program and got called for an interview?/ Has anyone heard of the interview process?
I know that this program has hired new grads before. For those who got hired into UM this way what was your experience? what did they ask? was it really a 10 member panel??
I AM EXTREMELY ANXIOUS/NERVOUS...HELP!
