Help!!! I can not find a job!!

  1. 0
    I am a new nurse in Philadelphia, PA. I graduated in May 2011 with a BSN and then successfully passed my state boards. As of now I have been unsuccessful in landing a job. So far I have had only 2 interviews. When asked why I was not chosen to be hired, they always reply "its due to my lack of experience". How in the world am I ever going to gain some experience if no one is willing to give me chance??? Fellow former classmates who have jobs now either were hired through a family member referral or had to move far away. It is now the end of the year and I am beginning to feel hopeless!! What am I to do

    Try LTC.

    You are not alone, keep at it. It can be very depressing, I know. I'm still looking myself.

    I'm sorry you're experiencing this. Is relocation a possibility? Perhaps you can widen your search that way. Also, have you tried looking at doctor's offices, LTC, Assisted Living, Home Health, etc. etc. ? You may have to get creative to get in somewhere and get experience. Good luck.

    If they are still doing that in Tacoma when I graduate- I might be taking you up on that--- I'd love to move to the west coast!

    I feel your struggle Robin, we are both on the same boat with the same experiences when applying. I just wonder sometimes... how can we get experience if they wont give us a chance... sometimes its kind of frustrating too to learn that someone else got their job because they knew someone from that hospital... Let's just pray for the best and keep on trying... one day we'll get our chance....
