When I started the nursing school application process, I was given assurances that I would be able to keep my fairly well paid call centre job during school - as a part-timer instead of the current full time. Well, July 2012 rolled around and I had been accepted, paid my tuition and got told that they wouldn't be allowing anyone to go part time
So - I worked part time through the first year of school at a local mall. It's really sales oriented (which I hate) and the only saving grace is that one of my colleagues happens to be in the same program, just one year ahead of me. A great source of information and tips! The trouble is now that it's summer, I'm not getting a ton of hours, and someone's got to pay for next year's tuition.
I have been applying to unit clerk jobs since July of 2012 and nothing, not even a call back
Until April. I had an interview for a casual position at a nearby hospital just down the road. I touched base with them last week and they're having a little trouble reaching my references but are hoping to give me an answer/update early this week. Could definitely use some good luck coming my way!
Our local community health centre is also hiring some summer students for full time positions from June - August. They had over 1000 applicants and are working to weed through them all. Started me with a short telephone interview and told me that if they decided to go forward I'd hear in the next 1-2 weeks. Things are starting to look up for the first time in a while and I'd love to have some mojo head my way if anyone's got any to spare
