    I've been looking through postings for the last 2 weeks. Many are .5-.6, which isn't really enough to live on if you're single. Of course, there are full time positions in medicine, ortho, and ltc which accept new grads. Jobs exist, but you'll need to be flexible and take what you get as a new grad. Most people I know who wanted specialty units waited 6 months to a year after graduation.
