It's good to have an outlet you can spill your feelings about finding a job and struggling being unemployed.
Got my CA RN license in Jan2011 and trying to land a RN job anywhere. Passed hundreds of applications online which seems like sending to a blackhole (then I learned that most employers
are only considering applicants that are referred and just ignore those who aren't). Applied to diff. RN Residencies in diff. states and the competition is really crazy (ex. only <50 available RN positions & 1000+ applicants) and some programs prefer those who graduated recently (which I think is a rubbish idea, talk about equal opportunity). Moreover, it's whom you know.
I graduated last yr, I'm staling, I don't fit as a "new grad" anymore, very expensive RN refresher courses which doesn't guarantee an employment and I don't know where would I get money for that. I used to be this guy who's full of hopes, goal-oriented, productive & motivated, now I'm depressed, frustrated, stressed and broke.
That's my story, what's yours?
