Your post really inspired me. It is refreshing to see that there is some hope out there, and kudos to you for not taking no for an answer. I will take heed to your advice...Can you PM me the letter you send to the DON. That would be really helpful..

I've sent PMs to those who asked for my letter to DONs.

Congrats on your new job. I loved this article; I am sharing it with others as I know it will benefit them!
I was wondering if you could, when you have time, also send me the letter you sent to your DON? I am totally going to write one to the DON on the tele floor I am doing clinicals on. I just wanted to get a feel for what I should say or shouldn't say, lol.
Thanks and if you have any other cool tips let us know

Being honest is huge. When I'm interviewing people I can usually tell when they're making things up. We've been interviewing people for a new position over the last few weeks. You would be amazed at how many people told me they were employed but when I asked them when they could start three of the people told me immediately. I'm really surprised that people don't understand that most employers want you to give your current employer a least two weeks notice. If someone isn't going to give their employer two week's notice it immediately raises a red flag. It shows that they'll probably do the same thing to us at some point. Unless they are a stellar candidate, I discount them right away.
Oh yeah, one more thing...When my neighbor was looking for a job she actually took an online job search course. She said it helped her immensely.
Congratulations again for finding your job. It sounds pretty cool.Last edit by dfloydb on Mar 28, '12 : Reason: Mispelling
