I GOT THE JOB!!!!!

  1. 8
    Little background

    I got my LPN license last Oct. In Jan of this year I got an on-call LPN position at nursing home far from home. It didn't work out, the censes kept going down. Did I mention that they hired three on-call LPN's? I've not been working since March.

    I've sent out so many job applications and had been getting really depressed. In July I applied for a job at a near by VA clinic. Matter of a fact, it was one of the places I did my clinical's at. In Aug, they called me up for an interview, this morning I was offered a job!!!!

    I GOT MY DREAM JOB YOU GUYS WORKING FOR THE VA!!!!!! My dad is a veteran, so in away I already understand their personalities in away. I'm so excited, I can hardly hold it together.

    For all you who are job hunting, you will land your job! Just hold on, it's going to happen.

    I am so jealous. I've been applying for every VA job that opens up here. Like you my dad is a veteran and I'd love to be able to give back like they did. Congratulations!!!

    Scrubwearer I am wishing you the best of luck in finding a job with the VA. Don't give up, and keep trying. Everytime see you job postings on USAJOBS.gov, apply. That's what I've been doing. Even when I was still in my LPN program I knew that I wanted to work for the VA because I won't join the military and way too scared, and I feel like this is the next best thing to take care of those brave men and women who fought for us.

    Keep trying, never give up. I've applied five times. Filling out all those forms and faxing them. I figured one of these days they'd get sick of all of the pages of my fax that they would finally hire me. The hiring process with the VA is like a 15 step process. The interview is step 8 (is that crazy or what?). Now I have to wait for my references to get back to them, they need to do the background check, and I need a physical with them along with fingerprints. I sent HR an e-mail asking how long this part is going to take, and he said about a month. I'm so excited to start working!!!!

    I'm definitely planning on applying as often as I can. I know it's a long process to get in there and I just keep trying.
