Applied for tons of jobs but no call backs (Georgia)Register Today!
- by EbonyRN1162 Jul 12, '12Hello 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??

- Jul 13, '12 by Marshall1Your complaint is not anything new...Georgia is notorious for facilities posting "tons" of jobs but hiring few. I don't know what area in Ga you are but Dekalb Medical and N E Georgia in Gainesville are on on a hiring spree right now. You may want to consider a staffing agency, such as Maxim or a travel agency if that is something you can do - until you land something permanent. There are several travel agencies that do local travel assignments. Grady in ATL is hiring too.
USAJOBS - The Federal Government’s Official Jobs Site is another site besides facility sites, monster and careerbuilder to look - good luck
