I am graduating in May. I've been talking to recruiters, filling out applications, attending open houses and job fairs, and sending out resumes with an attached cover letter.I had help with my resume by a college professor who teaches a class on the subject. When I go to speak with a recruiter I'm well dressed and groomed, I have a possitive, confident attitude, and I show a willingness to become part of their team. Unfortunately the outcome is always the same...no call back for an interview. My question is...What do you have to do to get hired?
I'm starting to feel really hopeless. Any and all help will be really appreciated. Thank you.

yep i had same thing happen to me. with some recruiters/nurse manager i dont really think they want the position filled. my advice is keep trying some recruiters act like the hospital is theirs so if they dont like you wont get a called back. try every hospital eventually you find a recruiter or nurse manager who wants to filled the open position. another tip i have is to bypass the nurse recruiters all together and talk to the nurse manager directly of a floor you'll like to work on. this accomplish getting your foot in the door and if nurse manager likes you no matter how the recruiter feel about you got the job. another reason for your difficulty may be the fact you dont have your rn license some hospital wont deal with you without your license.
