I have been unemployed for 18 months now and it seems like every interview I go to, it seems very positive, then a week or two later I get a rejection email or phone call
I left my last job as a Public Health Nurse due to an emergency surgery that took my out of commission for several months. I LOVED my position and had only been there 8 months. It was my first real RN position since graduating from nursing school. I function better as a clinic/doctor's office setting nurse vs. hospital.
I am just depressed, expenses are piling up. Any advice? I know the only thing I can do is keep applying and interviewing. Will it ever end?!?
Sending positive light your way.
I actually emailed a quick note explaining my circumstances recently to the human resources director at a clinic near me that I really want to work at, and there is an open position. This was in addition to my cover letter and resume. Director forwarded my resume to the nurse manager and stated that my explanation email was what got me through! I so hope they call me!
PM me and I would be happy to share what I wrote. Maybe it can give you some ideas.
