    Have you tried Wellstar new grad residency program? Emory has one as well. I just saw them on Indeed.com last week. Good luck.

    It's beyond tough down here for established and new grad nurses. Get a login and profile with Wellstar, Emory, Kaiser, Piedmont, and Grady and check their job boards daily. Some have new grad positions open and some don't. Patience is key.

    You better waltz on down to Grady. It's an inner city, level one trauma center. It's definitely not for the faint of heart or the weak, but their residency program start anew every month. But it would definitely be a hard place to start working if you're a new grad, in a new city. Good luck! But also try well star and Emory.

    I personally would love to work at Grady if I lived closer..you can try Gwinnett Medical and Northeast Georgia Medical Center - they hire new grads. One thing that maybe holding you up is you don't actually live in Ga. as yet -
    also www.usajobs.gov for Federal jobs - they hire new grads and the VA in Augusta is hiring.

    The thing about not living in Georgia is key. Why should anybody go out of their way to hire someone from out of town when there are so many craptons of people in town who are applying? The trick is to make sure you don't obviously stand out as an out-of-towner. When I applied for jobs in other states, I'd get somebody local to let me use his/her address on my resume, and I'd sign up for a local phone number via Google Voice (they'll give you one for free and automatically forward all calls that number receives to your actual number). Nobody actually sends mail to the address on your resume, at least not in my experience, so it's never been a problem. When they call for an interview, just explain that you're out of town for the holidays and ask if they'd be willing to do a phone interview. It may not actually work, but it's a better idea than nothing, and it netted me interviews a couple of times.

    Good luck with your job hunt!
