I like hearing stories like this. It helps me to keep the faith that I too will find a job soon. I graduated in March, got my license in May, and have been applying all over the U.S. I'm willing to take ANYTHING, ANYWHERE, HOLIDAYS, WEEKENDS, NIGHTS, you name it!
Out of curiosity, did you have ACLS & PALS before you interviewed? I'm thinking about getting my ACLS certification. Obviously, without a job I'd rather not spend $240, but I will if it'll give me an advantage.
Again...big congrats to you! You must be so relieved.
