I posted this on another website and am getting no's and I am really desparate. I already sent off my statement and would be devastated if they it came back denied. Any opinions or help please?
Here is my dilemma, my husband is working two jobs, we have two children, and I am ready to go back to work. I would like to apply at a hospital that I previously worked at before but was discharged from involuntarily. I sent an application and received a rehire review request form in the mail. One of the questions is "Please provide a statement supporting your request for rehire:"
Here is what happened. I worked there about six plus years ago and I had the best job in the world working in pediatrics, I LOVE kids. I thought I was in love and had been going through a bad time in the relationship that I was in, my boyfriend cheated on me and then moved to Florida but he still gave me his phone number, and I was calling him on a calling card from work while I was finishing up my charting. I was warned but did not listen and made the stupidest mistake and was let go. I have regret this decision ever since and now I have an opportunity to hopefully get on at the company.
Here is my statement, would you hire me back?
"To have wisdom is a gift. To have that same wisdom and help others is truly a blessing. I took that for granted and gave up way too easily many years ago. From the time I became a [co.] Medical Explorer all the way through earning my Certified Nursing Assistant status has been a true privelage. I have made many mistakes since that time, but I have also learned from my mistakes and would love the opportunity to show how I can be a great asset to [co.] and a great help to all the patients that I will encounter in my future.
I am now married with two children and more so now than ever understand what responsibility means and just how important life is. I also understand that life is not easy nor fair for anyone and to appreciate each gift that is given to me. The smile on those faces and knowing I will be one of those that helped make everything better will be worth it. I would give anything to have that world back in my life."
