Just to give everyone a little sense of how bad the job market is for new grads, I have some humerus news (get it?). I graduated in May, passed NCLEX in June, and have been looking for a job since, had a couple interviews, nada. So I decided to try and volunteer at a hospital with the hopes that I could get to know the staff and help my chances. I get an email this morning REJECTING ME FROM VOLUNTEERING BECAUSE I'M A NEW GRAD NURSE!!!!!! HA!!!!!
