    I have actual gotten in touch with a recruiting agency in hopes that my resume will find the right hands when it's time for me to start looking for a new grad residency. Human Resources seems like such a road block to clinical professionals. I wonder why they don't use retired RNs for this type of work? Someone who knows what to look for besides a list of a few terms that an applicant needs to have in their application to trigger a response. Very frustrating.
    Yes, indeed. Very frustrating.

    HR personnel are the gatekeepers to most companies because they filter the applicants, and therefore, strongly impact who gets hired and who doesn't.

    But often times they don't understand the clinical aspects. I have had recruiters tell me that 16 months of hospital tech float pool experience doesn't qualify for the 12 month of hospital tech experience? I asked why and they said "we didn't realize you had more than 12...sorry"

    REALLY?!? Argh.

    I interviewed a week ago for a health department job. I actually called my interviewer the next day of my interview. Thanked her for giving me the interview, told her again how much I would love to work there, asked a few questions that I forgot to include during the interview. But I never heard back from her. So should I call her again or email her? Would that be seen as harassment?
