I called today to follow up on my resume submission.
I managed to engage the recruiter in a conversation.
The recruiter told me that they are hiring but she has 1100 resumes to look over.
She says she can't look over all of them. That it's really a luck thing...they will pull some and if those people fit they will be called. If not they will pull some more but there is no way to physically look at all 1100.
The entire nursing staff doesn't consist of 1100 nurses and they are only looking for a few nurses.
So now the job search has been reduced to a lottery.
This is a small community hospital in one of the outer boroughs.
I can't imagine how many resumes are being submitted to places in the City.
I might as well laugh about it...it's better than crying...I guess.
