I am currently looking for a new job and have been applying for part time positions even though I really want full time hours. Most hospitals don't have many (if any) full time positions open, so I'd like to get my foot in the door any way possible. My question is this - if the HR person asks me what type of hours I'm looking for, should I be up front and state that I want full-time, even if it's a PT position I've applied for? This hospital has several per diem positions posted as well, so I'm guessing I'd be able to pick up hours there. I just don't want them to look at me and wonder "why is she wasting our time?"
