In today's market, where everything is going electronic, it is very rare to speak with a real person when either applying, or hearing a response from a job application.
I graduated in December, took my boards in Jan, and landed my first job in March. HOWEVER, I went to school and live in New Orleans, and had to take a job in Jackson, MS to get hired.
Most of my friends who I graduated with, and didn't find jobs right away [those that did were through contacts they made by working as techs or clerks during school], and refused to consider leaving New Orleans are just now, after nearly a year, finding jobs.
My advice is, if you have applied to all the hospitals in your area and not getting any hits, start expanding your search outward. Consider some of the smaller city hospitals that are away from the major metropolitan areas where a number of nursing schools are putting out new grads on a regular basis.
Regardless of what everyone says, there ARE a number of nursing jobs
out there, they just might not be where you are looking and you've got to be willing to go to them, or accept the ones that most people are passing over. Hang in there.
