Ahh, exactly as I thought. I definitely need a steady paycheck, so I guess I'll continue to skip over those positions. Thank you for the response.
I totally understand your reasoning -- and shared it myself... until I became a bit more desperate and came to realize that what I needed in the near term, even more than a regular paycheck, was experience.
I was fortunate to be hired FT but two other new grads were hired PRN and they're still getting experience... and quite a few hours.
I'd encourage you to apply for everything... a PRN gig might tide you over until you find a FT gig. Besides, you can always turn it down. You may at least get some valuable interviewing experience and begin making some contacts with people who may later have FT positions.
Also, FT postings are often perfunctory and the positions already slated to internal candidates... who're often PRN folks.
Now's not a great time to be overly selective in your applications.
