Hello nurses and future nurses, I moved to Georgia in November 2011, I have been looking for a job ever since. I got a job offer 2 weeks after being here but it was a temp position and that assignment ended in April. I have been putting in application non-stop everyday for every healthcare facility I know. I even had an interview and the HR person was telling me how difficult it is for nurses to get a job here in Georgia because it is so saturated (the schools
just spit the nursing students out here), also when I told her my expected salary was $27/hr she told be I needed to come down a bit. OK look I don't mind coming down $1-2 but that's it. What is going on I make sure I am professional, I have a lot of experience, stable work history that shows longevity, and a professional resume. I need a job ASAP. I come from a small town where it is easy for nurses to get a job. I'm not use to this big city living. I am on the verge of leaving and going back to Indiana where I know I can get a job and the pay I want! Any advise??
