I definitely will try to get a written recommendation and make copies. So far on my applications, I've noted that it was a mutual decision to leave during my probationary period because the job was not a right fit. When the lady called to set up the interview, I truthfully told her that I was hired full time but because of school went PRN and I think the manager really needed a full time person. So far it has not been detrimental to me, but I'm hoping this PRN job comes through with this interview on Saturday. The best thing I have in my corner is that I resigned from my first job and that I am still on the payroll at the LTC facility in which I started out as a CNA during college. I have been employed at the LTC facility per diem for four years so I hope that shows that I am not a "job-hopper" which I fear I'm going to look like after this. I'm still shocked that this happened to me especially during a recession. I am a single mother so I always take my job seriously because I only have one income and the fact that I could be fired with no warning scares me to death. The only thing that keeps me from going completely insane is that I'm in school and can always ask for a student loan to pay the bills and I also have some money in my savings. People don't need to operate like that but I guess small town places like that can get away with it.
