Hospitals are getting away with "murder" in this economy. O.k. so I am so beyond flustered and I am hoping for some feedback or any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am a new graduate (May 2008)..I waited to look for a job, since I was pregnant my last semester in nursing school
... now it's impossible to get a job.. I have been applying for jobs since January. The only interview (1 repeat I have had 1 interview and applied for more jobs than I can count) was from my nursing school where I did my clinical and I came across (1.) I have also come across (2.) and (3). too many times in the five months I have been applying for jobs.
(1.) Illegal questions during interview
(2.) Stating jobs that they will only hire internal candiates causing a great waste of time for external candiates: applications can take many hours
(3.) Treating job applicants like dirt... not returning phone calls and be down right rude!
Please share your experiences and give me some advice, please!!
Here are some of illegal questions I was asked during my interview, which made me feel very uncomfortable and of course caused me to interview poorly!
What are ages of your children, what does your husband do for a living, where does he work, where do you live, do you have family support? By the way... I called the HR department and told them what happen and they said that they would try and get me another interview in other department and they have told me no openings...I have been calling every month and keep telling me to call back! This is the hospital where I would be considered an internal candidate!
