When I was younger, I notoriously job hopped, I would just up and quit and not show up to my CNA jobs. I have burned my bridges and don't have any good references. (Part of my problem was having an undiagnosed mental illness)
Now fast forward, I got diagnosed, am taking meds....and I grew up. I have a job I love, and I have been working as a home health RN for a year. I have NEVER missed a shift, I have been a model employee.
But I want to work in a hospital, and I am finding myself with rejection letter after rejection letter. I think it is due to my sucky resume
Because I don't have any good references, I have had to kind of "tweak" my resume, and it looks empty. The only job I have listed on there is my current nurse job.
Believe me I have learned my lesson, and I grew up. I live in Wisconsin, and I know that the job market isnt the best, but I also have realized that I am one of the few left out of my graduating class (december 2011) who does not have a job in a hospital. :/
Is there any hope for me? Or does anybody have an advice?
