Didn't get the job - page 3
Hey guys, Well I just found out that I didn't get a job that I had 3 interviews for. I can't help but to just sit here and cry because I really thought that I got it! This is beyond... Read More
Feb 11, '13Aww sorry to hear that. I know how frustrating that can be. I've had interviews with managers who personally knew some of my relatives and I STILL couldn't find a job when I was a new grad. At one point I had so many interviews in a short amount of time, I wasn't nervous about them anymore LOL. So like everyone said, keep applying....relocate if necessary (I moved cross country for my 2nd RN job and love it!)...and know that some things are not meant to be. The right one will come along. Good luck!!!!
Feb 11, '13Sadly... this brought me some comfort. I found out tonight that I did not get a position that I had interviewed for last week. What makes me upset the most is that the nursing recruiter called me after the interview asking if I even wanted to interview for another position I had applied for. She said that she had spoken w/ the nursing manager and she talked like she would give me a job offer.... so did I really want to interview for another position?
I did interview for the other position. However, I feel like the interview for the 2nd position went worse! Also, she called me today to schedule another interview for another position but this time she wasn't as upbeat as the previous times. She had me thinking that I had the 1st position I interviewed for.
It sucks! Especially when you know you're the best for that position! Yeah, I've tried to look at these interviews as "experience" but honestly, it's difficult. I also have debt from student loans (& my husbands hrs are about to be cut)... it's difficult not to cry.
Feb 12, '13Keeping my fingers crossed for you. It's ok to cry!! We've all done it at some point. It's a frustrating process to go through, but hang in there. You have us here for support!
Feb 13, '13Thanks for the support everyone... I come on here when I need some encouragement. I had another interview yesterday for a different hospital. I'm not really sure how it went, sort of okay I guess... but an okay interview usually doesn't get a call back... Trying to stay positive though!
I remember a recruiter once told me that I come off as very sweet and like a pushover. Seems like I'm doomed to land a nursing job because I'm nice??? I can definitely assert myself though and I'm a very strong person... if only someone would just give me a chance... Don't patients like sweet nurses anyway? Lol
After 5 unsuccessful nursing interviewers, I'm starting to think that the common denominator is me. I try to "fake it till I make it", but that just feels awkward and forced. The thing is, I don't want to have to change my whole personality to get a job or for any reason really. This truly stinks.
