    It is worth a shot!

    I don't want to sound like a witch but I will not PM anyone my resume or cover letter. I feel as if I've shared enough tips and advice in the article that the rest is up to you all to do. There are plenty of resumes and cover letters online to look at. I looked at dozens before I wrote mine and I continually updated it to fit each job prospect. I do not like the idea that someone could copy my work. I was being generous when I was PM'ing my email to the DONs. Since it is already out there, I will add it to my article so everyone can see it. (Here's another hint- this email resembles my cover letter. I guess you could take it from there.) I will continue to answer specific questions if you all have any.

    Wow, this is the best post I have ever read!....I am a soon-to be graduate in June 2012 and have started my my networking early....that being said, I will certainly take your tips and run with them....how soon is too soon to be making these contacts?....I have three more months before I even test for the NCLEX, I am very confident I will pass but am I jumping the gun too soon?....My goal is to seperate myself from the pack come June, the competition will be heating up....so my goal is to land a position now, contingent upon a successful NCLEX score....any thoughts?....
