I will be graduating in a few days. I have started my job search last week (I applied to a few positions throughout this semester) but I am now expanding to include non-RN residency programs. From the forums/stories I've heard, it seems like most people get their jobs through connections. I'm worried because I don't have any connections. I'm interested in hearing stories from people who have gotten jobs without connections (preferably in the last 2-3 years) and how they made themselves stand out (lots of work experience, etc).
