Today I was hired for a part-time LPN position at a local hospital which is 25 minutes driving distance from my house. I've been officially looking for a job since October 20th this year. I'm still waiting for another full time opportunity but are pretty happy about finally getting my foot in the door.
My previous education and working experiences have nothing to do with healthcare. I graduated from a LPN program and have moved to another smaller city. Local jobs are very hard to find because of my lack of experiences, smaller population size in the city, and the long distance from my previous clinical sites. I emailed/ mailed/ faxed probably at least 50 resumes in 45 days.
I just want to offer some encouragement to those new grads without previous experiences. Don't give up! Keep applying, and keep going to interviews. You'll finally find a job!
