Really cute "Demand answers, professionally!"
That is such great advice, since a person who is not getting feedback starts to feel like they don't deserve to be talked to. I am there right now, and lord I deserve more! Best of luck ladies!
Yes, smiles, and it works. I understand how you feel. We all are there and have been there. Although I have a job, it was a very depressing process in which you just want to give up, but don't.
Demand Answers... for example:
WHEN IS A GOOD DAY FOR US TO SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW?
HOW CAN I GO ABOUT GETTING HIRED?
I'VE APPLIED TO YOUR FACILITY LAST WEEK, I AM CALLING ABOUT MY APPLICATION.
WHAT IS YOUR NURSING RECRUITERS NAME, DOES SHE OR HE HAVE A BUSINESS CARD?
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO HEAR FROM YOU ABOUT POSSIBLE POSITIONS.
ARE YOU HIRING NEW GRADS?(usually not a good question...LOL) A receptionist told me no they werent hiring period and two weeks later I received a phone call from the nurse manager. I didn't get the job but at least I got an interview.
Thats professionally damanding answers and they sometimes make us uncomfortable to ask because we are afraid of the answer, but don't be afraid of the answer, because you can either move on or keep on calling them depending on what they say. Its a good networking tool because sometimes they offer information that can help.
