Is it THAT hard to get a job in the Atlanta area?

  1. 0
    Hi all! Currently I'm a 4th semester ADN student in KY. I should be Andrea, RN in June. After reading some of the posts, I'm kinda discouraged about even attempting to get a job as an RN in the Atlanta area. Granted, I'm not planning on moving until AFTER I get my KY license and work here for a few months, but from my reading I'm gathering that it almost seems impossible.

    Is this just banter or am I in for a rough ride?

    Thanks for all your help,

    a.

    everyone seems to have a different opinion to this question, however, I have been in Atlanta GA for 8 to nine months I have been on a total of maybe 4 interviews this is while I have been actively looking for employment, I have 20 years experience in accounting and 4 years in tech work and nothing, I still can't believe it is this hard to find a job here.

    If you really want to live in Atlanta, begin by calling places of employment that interest you. You never know when your call may be the the perfect timing for some employer who was about to put an ad out.

    Also, please don't let some comments by a few on this forum discourage you from pursuing something you want. If you set your mind up for success, visualize what you want as if it were true today, you will be amazed how things start to happen for you. I have found this over and over in my career. My most stagnant times in my life is when I resigned myself to a situation and didn't think of future possibilities.

    I wish you the best as a soon to be RN!!!

    Thanks so much for the encouragement, I am moving forward by going to school for another certification as a PCT as well, I figure that if I have some phelbotomy, EKG, and wond care under my belt while still working towards my RN that should help, either here or back north somewhere.

    Either way you are right I am not giving up on my RN and I also plan on calling around to a few LTC opportunities
