I graduated May 2013. Took and passed my Nclex August 31th and I have been officially licensed since the 5th of September. I've applied at 50+ jobs now and I've not gotten one call back. I believe 100% that the reason for this is bc I've not had any jobs related to being a nurse or medical anything.
I've done mostly retail bc that's what's been easier to come by and simple to hold down while I was going through school.
Is there any way that I can spruce up my résumé to have an employer even glance and think twice about calling me in for an interview? I know once I have the interview I can make a MUCH better impression and boost my chances of getting the job at least 50%.
I'd prefer a clinical job like family practice or community clinic to help me gain experience then I'll float around or stay there while I go back to school next fall.
But honesty I just want to get started.
