I'm sorry about how frustrating this is. Even though I am a new grad and "should?" have some difficulty getting work, it still sucked. I applied to 9 hospitals (since june) and when it was all said and done, the one who gave me a call back and offered me a job did so because I met one of the nursing recruiters randomly in public.
I was happy about getting the interview, but a little put off because my acheivements like getting through nursing school
, passing nclex, volunteering yada yada yada really didn't matter because to all of those other hospitals, I was just a peice of paper amist the hundreds.
As nurses we go through so much red tape and monumental achievements in our careers.... and it seems when it should matter the most, sometimes it doesn't. I had such good references and an amazing GPA and I never heard anything from those 9 hospitals.. even with follow up via phone, fax, and visiting in person.
These months have been tough to say the least. Especially since my husband and I just moved here to NYC 3 months ago. I looked at it as a character building process..
All that to say, I really feel for your situation and wish you the best. Don't give up, and when you get discouraged remember that you are valuable! Don't let the silence of recruiters make you doubt yourself or your goals.
