Hi! I did my senior practicum in nursing school at CHOA Egleston. So when I was ready to start applying to hospitals I wanted to work at CHOA first and foremost. Unfortunately, due to the economy there are very few opportunities to new grads at CHOA. I applied to all RN jobs regardless of whether they said experienced or new grad (there were none that said new grad). I got email after email that said they wanted an experienced nurse. Finally one day a nurse recruiter from CHOA called me and said they had saw my application so many times for other positions that they think they have one i might be interested in. So, i interviewed, took the exam and actually got the job
So be persistant and dont give up. You want your name to stand out in their head. Also, if you get an interview be sure to send a thank you card the next day. I did that because there were 10 other interviews for my job and i swear that made me stick out in their heads because I went the extra mile. Good luck and hope to see you here soon!!
