I hope my post will bring some encouragement/inspiration to someone..
Last week I had an interview and was offered the job the same day. My interview consisted of a one-on-one with the manager and then a panel with 3 of the nurses. Talk about nerve-racking. I felt very blessed to have gotten this job only 1 1/2 months after I had taken my boards considering its super hard for new grads to get a job right away.
Please don't give up. God knows the desires of your heart and will fulfill them according to His plan.
I volunteered at the hospital I work at and built relationships with the manager and staff of the unit. When I applied for a position I saw on the website I let the manager know and she spoke to the hiring manager of the unit I applied for. This helped a lot too & I encourage everyone to do that if you aren't volunteering already.
Apply to everywhere you can..
Also, its the beginning of the year still.. I'm sure there will be more openings.
I'm praying for everyone who doesn't have a job to get one soon.
I start on monday so I would appreciate the prayers!
Good luck my fellow nurses. :redpinkhe
