Quote from aubrianna
those would be spelled "you're"
if your at the top of your class than you know how hard it is to achieve that, and for me it was the greatest achievement of my life for many reasons relating to my childhood.
why did you even interject about a topic that you know nothing about, your just a nursing student. this pertains to nurses, not you.
Quote from flytnrs2b
she was responding to your original post. whether she is a nursing student or a nurse does not matter. afterall, allnurses.com is a "nurse and nursing student network of 525000+ members...where nurses and nursing students talk everything about nursing." "it is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help." ~author unknown "none are so empty as those who are full of themselves." ~benjamin whichcote good luck in your search for a job.
from the bit i read, i'd say you are pretty cocky and a turn off as a candidate. yes, you may have all the bells and whistles....but to be honest, they're too loud- and personally, i definitely wouldn't want to work with someone like that. you make it seem as if you know it all, and quite frankly if you did you wouldn't have put up this post.
i suggest you keep trying, but with a more humble attitude. i myself will be a new grad in december, and i know that things are not the way they used to be a few years ago. but again, look around and see all the people with educations, who were in top positions that may be bagging your groceries or taking your order- they may not like it, but i'm sure they are grateful for a job. so be grateful to have the opportunity to interview, even if it leads to nothing. eventually you will get a job and as you say, if you know you will excel, then you will.
i am also at the top of my class, honor society, nsna board member, etc.-but i know i can't count on that to get me a job. hopefully a smile and just a sincere interest to work will give me a chance, and only then will i add the fact that i have a list of acheivements.....a better reason to hire me.
best of luck. if you're such an acheiver then you know you will land a job
