I graduated with my Associate's back in December and passed the NCLEX in may. I am a 22 y/o male with no prior medical experience but have worked with a wide range of different age groups throughout my previous jobs. I remember looking back at school when everyone would rant and rave about how employers would love young male nurses as they were at one time few and far between. However I have applied for what I feel like is about a billion jobs(both hospitals and long term care) but probably closer to 350 and I don't seem to get any call backs.......Does anyone have any advice as to what I can do to possibly sell myself to employers? I am in the admission process to the RN-BSN at Towson University and obviously have CPR and am signed up to do ACLS later this month.
Thanks for any insight anyone may have.
Print and share with friends and family.

Beef up your resume - make sure to sell yourself and seperate yourself from other candidates
Send a handwritten thank you note to anyone you speak or interview with - it may not get you the job but it will remind them of your intention and may set you apart
