I applied to the Med Surg unit at a local hospital. Last week, a recruiter called me and asked me to an interview. I was sooo excited at first, until I asked her who will be at the interview she told me it was the DON of postpartum/L&D unit. She said it was for post-partum & L&D new grad position. Now I learned, apparently new grad. application gets circulated in the hospital! ha..
I told her I'm not interested in women's health. and declined the interview.
Today, the head recruiter called (turned out last week was recruiter's assistant), basically just to confirm that I was offered an interview but declined? I again explained to him, I am not interested in post-partum/L&D unit. I asked if there are interviews going on for med surg or other units? He said maybe if selected next week they'll start calling..
I don't know, I just felt bad -- should I have gone to the interview? even tho I have absolute no interest in OB (don't feel comfortable too)??
I am afraid I won't even get a call back from med-surg now. It's my first time getting a call back! sigh.. I don't understand why the recruiter called twice and even just to confirm that I declined an interview? was it bad? is it a no-no in job hunting?
