I applied for a peds postion in a small community hospital last week. The recruiter called me the next day and said she was forwarding my info to the nurse manager. So i assumed qualified for the position. I never got a call back for an interview. Yesterday i got an email stating that I "lacked the experience the position required." I thought this was funny because I have over 5 years experience in pediatrics at a major children's hospital. But i still lack experience for a small peds unit ??? Also, in the posting it said "pediatric experience preferred" I thought i was at least i was a candidate for an interview.
A few days after i applied the position was taken down and it re-posted yesterday. Should i reapply? Should i email the recruiter to see what experience they were looking for? Or should i let it go?
