Finally!!! An interview!

  1. 5
    i finally have an interview, and a nibble for a new grad program at the same hospital system. it's taken 3 years of constantly applying to various places, including this one.

    i am cautiously optimistic and trying not to get my hopes up, but to get to this point is something i had almost given up on. the position is on a cardiac/telemetry unit, something i have prior lpn experience on. but i need to emphasize my desire to learn and grow as an rn first and foremost.

    time to dust off my interview clothes and review interview questions.

    Congrats! I know what you mean...I recently graduated and passed boards, so now i'm in the same boat trying to job hunt. Before entering nursing school, I totally assumed finding a job would be a piece of cake...boy was I wrong. I'm just going to pray, stay positive and hope for the best.

    Congrats once again, God Bless, and Good Luck on your interview!

    Best of luck to you. I just graduated in May. I hadn't interviewed in 10 years. It was intimidating, but I did well. I'm sure you will too, especially when they see your enthusiasm!

    This job market is tough these days. I would almost pay a professional to rewrite my resume and help me find a job. It would be worth the cost just to be able to practice nursing.

    my cousin asked me what i was wearing to the interview. i have nice suit that i call my main interview suit. i just hope it still fits as it's been a while since i last wore it and i've unfortunately gained some weight. i also have class that evening, so i scheduled the interview to be the same day to save on fuel. i can just go to campus afterwards and work on homework.

    i'm also making a batch of business cards and will take a copy of my resume and personalize my cover letter for the manager i will be interviewing with. i just hope i make a good impression. if i get the job i will definately need a refresher course in reading strips.

    is it being greedy to hope for an interview for the new grad program as well?

    i don't think it's being greedy. an interview is just an interview, it is not a concrete job offer. until you have that job offer in hand, you are not obligated to anyone and i think it's smart to take advantage of all the options that may come your way. good luck with the interview!
