    The hospitals are not going to hire you even with a pay cut.

    The biggest problem? New grads (less than 1 year experience) are too expensive because up until 2009, they had a 50% attrition rate. On average, that is anywhere from $50,000 to $80,000 in lost HR/orientation/residency/training and replacement costs.

    Interestingly, my hospital is now only hiring new grads because of the budget. I am leaving there so I'm not all that concerned about it but I don't think it necessarily portrays a positive image to basically say, "we'll hire you because we don't have to pay you as much."
