New Grad Looking for Job in New England Area/ Colorado

  1. Hey!

    I am a current Senior nursing student and I'm starting to apply for jobs and such. I really want to move back to New England or maybe try out Colorado. Has anyone heard about how the job market is in either place? I used to live in Boston, so anything in the city would be ideal, but I know that the job market is saturated there with so many new grads. I want to do well baby nursery, so if anyone hear's about jobs in that area anywhere in the country please let me know! I really need to start looking at jobs and area's to live after school so any help you guys can give would be great!

    Here's to hoping my last semester goes well and the job market is not to bad

    Thanks guys!

    Ashley - I live in Colorado and this state is BRUTAL for new grads! I am working on sending out resumes and cover letters and get rejection e-mails left and right. Def. have a job lined up before you move to CO, if that's what you decide to do! Good luck!

    Hi Ashley,

    I agree with Mommy. I graduated in May 2011 and moved to Colorado from Texas, and I haven't found anything. The job market in CO is abysmal. There are never jobs posted just for new grads. It's always 'Looking for a nurse with 1+ years of experience but new grads can apply as well.' I definitely would not move to CO unless you already have a job offer. Best of luck!
