[color=#333333][font=lucida grande]has anyone ever had experience contacting a hiring manager and asking them why their application was not considered for hire/interview?
i just want to know what is missing from my app or what i can do to increase my chances of at least landing an interview? i have a bsn degree, 2 years experience as a nurse's aide, a 180 hour preceptorship in a medical icu (in a rural hospital), healthcare volunteer experience, and at least 4 professional references. i know that my experience is probably to equivalent to that of many people on this website....but i have not landed 1 interview even 5 months after graduation. i graduated december 2011. one of my friends, who is a career advisor, even helped me with my resume to change the formatting. my cover letter is decent (might need help?). maybe the school i went to does not have as a prestigious reputation as other schools? i went to humboldt state university (a cal state school) and the place where i had my preceptorship was st. joseph's eureka. decent reputation...
let me know if you have any ideas, tips, suggestions.
