    @tokyorose that is so awesome!! I am currently looking for jobs and applying everywhere with no luck at all. I am starting to get down on myself and really frustrated. I love the technique you shared. Would you mind private messaging me the letter you sent to the DON. And also do you have any suggestions on what answers are good when they ask you about your strengths and weaknesses? My email is

    @tokyorose maybe my cover letter just isn't that good and doesn't stand out of the crowd. You said that you think your cover letter is really good. Would you mind private messaging me that as well for a reference?

    I am in the same boat you were in..unfortunately. All my classmates are getting jobs and I don't even get called for an interview!!! So incredibly frustrating!! I also graduated at the top of my class, but I now realize that it means nothing.I just did the whole stalker style email to a nurse manager. Hopefully I will hear something. I have a ?..did you get any callbacks or offers from hospitals that did not have any active positions listed? There is a local hospital that I would do anything I can do to work at, but they have had no active job opportunities posted for almost a year. This is the hosp that I just did the stalker email to s nurse manager...I just don't know if its worth it to keep doing w other unit managers of the same hosp if they are not hiring. What do you think?

    I am applying to a new grad program where the application period does not close until 2/5. Is it worth it to send an email now, or should I just wait until it closes? I'm thinking of sending it now just to put a seed in the managers head. Honestly, this tip to get a job sounds amazing. Its so simple that I brushed it aside thinking "they want to hear my voice". Obviously they like email a lot better, since I guess it is "harder" to do.
