Hi. I gave this advice to someone else on here who's a new grad looking for a job. The same rules pretty much apply for every new RN looking for a job. So here's some advice that I hope helps. As far as the resume...send one..make it concise..no more than 1 page. Only list the clinicals relevant to the position you're applying for. Don't list your SNF rotation for an OB job. Include your GPA on the resume if it's a decent one. Include a cover letter with every application. Tailor every cover letter for the position you're applying for...use the words the employer uses to describe the position. Try to not talk about what you want vs. how you would benefit the company if they hired you. Try not to say seeking RN position vs. Seeking to benefit company through improving patient outcomes as a staff nurse...get it. Always follow up after applying....give the recruiter at least a week before you call them to give them a chance to read your resume...but follow up. Send thank you letters after every interview within 2 days of the interview...and follow up. Also on the resume include in nursing clubs or societies that you were involved in and talk about your time management skills in being able to balance work, school, and clubs. Persistence is the key to getting a job in this economy. I also suggest you get some wicked references...write the letters yourself and get them to sign it...your professors, clinical instructors...especially masters or doctorate prepared ones. Good luck new nurses.
