I graduated in August with my ASN and passed boards in September. Like everyone else, I have applied for over 100 jobs and have only had one interview (didn't get the job). However, I have a friend who is a CNA at a local hospital. She says they are hiring 8 nurses on her unit. I have already applied for those 8 jobs online. Last week she sent the nurse manager an email about me saying I was a new grad and top in my class. She went on about how great a fit she thought I'd be, etc. then she left my resume on her desk. A few days later I emailed the nurse manager saying I heard there were jobs and I was attaching my resume and to please consider me. I have heard nothing back. Should I call the nurse manager on the phone and follow up, or is that just annoying? If so, what do I say? I'm not really the stalking/harassing type.
One girl in our class got her job at the hospital by calling HR EVERY SINGLE DAY! After they hired her they told her she was completely annoying. But they hired her.Any advice?
