Question about hospital hiring policies.

  1. 0
    Has anybody ever been put on a "Hiring List" following a job interview. I recently interviewed for a position with a hospital and was told that I'm being put on a hiring list so that when a position opens up and they get to me, I'll be hired.

    I'm just curious if this is a common policy with hospitals? And while I'm extremely grateful, on the other hand like Tom Petty said, "The Waiting is the Hardest Part", and every day that passes it just seems less and less likely. Thanks

    I was put on a "hiring list" of sorts when I won a summer internship for a hospital. The internship program was later cancelled, but I was told by an HR drone that "We generally like to hire those that do internships..."

    As I graduated at the tail end of a horrible job market for everyone (2011), I applied at the hospital above and got no response. I called the HR drone and said, "Yo babe, what about that tasty hookup you mentioned that came with that internship?" (I used different words).

    HR Drone replied, "Well...ummm...do you know any managers or employees here at the hospital?"

    "Only you," I replied. We said goodbye with no promises or assurances given.

    A few days later I was called for an interview and the next afternoon I was offered a job. Dunno if the cool-brother-hookup I called in with the HR drone had anything to do with it or not.

    Good luck!
