So a few months ago, I interviewed for an RN position at a hospital with HR, then the NM of the med-surg unit then finally the peer interview. It was with 5 RNs and I thought it went really well. Turns out that they liked me, but went with a RN who worked there for a year and they felt that he would be a better fit.
So fast forward to last week, I get a call from the NM of another unit wanting to interview me and I gladly went to it (I already have the endorsement from HR so he forwards my resume to any unit that may fit me). She and another NM interviewed me and gave me info about the unit and hospital culture, asked a few questions about myself (regular interview questions), I asked about the position in detail. So now, the next step would be..... ANOTHER PEER INTERVIEW! They have several internal candidates going for this position. I felt so internally deflated.
Should I even bother to get my hopes up? I feel that if they already have people in mind, it's unfair to drag me along again..... Or maybe I'm overindulging in self-pity.
