    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!

    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!

    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
