Thank you so very much for the help!! I will be spending the weekend editing my résumé! I do plan on networking as much as possible!
I have applied to every new grad position in my area and most of them have already interviewed people for the positions. I know the market is tough and I only have my ADN which makes it even harder for me. I will be continuing on to get my BSN this fall, should I include that somewhere? I just want my resume to be perfect. I know a lot of times part of it is getting past the automated computer filters. Let me know how I can improve my resume, any advice is greatly appreciated!

Congrats and good luck on the interview!! When did they contact you about an interview?
Has anyone applied to the JPS graduate nurse position??
Yes!! And ER! fingers crossed!
"Ivana RN-BC- can you pm me the info about this hospital I would not mind commuting a little. Thanks!
Thanks so much for the advice! I will be using these tips when I start my job hunt soon! Congrats on the job!
It will definitely help, a lot of managers like to hire someone they already know and trust
The sooner the better but not too soon, I was think I would start applying the end of February except for any new grad intern positions if they are available sooner! Start making contacts with nurse managers and nurses at your clinical site
It's discouraging but don't give up hope, your first job may not be at a hospital. Get out and network! It's all about who you know these days!
Everyone at school was talking about this!! It's so true! I hope to find a job!
I graduate in May and want to eventually go into peds so I will definitely be saving this for future reference
This was so incredibly helpful!! Thanks for sharing!!
Try to get a job as a tech in the hospital you will have a better chance of your manager wanting to hire you. Also you can't be picky with your first job it might be on a med-surg floor, a doctor's office or LTC
