So in response to a previous post. I do work in a SNF. And while I like it, I have always wanted to work at the hospital. But for whatever reason it seems to be unobtainable for me. And while I try to keep positive, I feel that I will never be good enough. It was suggested to me I keep a few ideas in mind: good resume, cover letter, killer interview, body language.
So have a resume, will upload and you can pick it apart, I have no cover letter. Had 3 interviews, and they went nowhere, and no idea why. One interviewer said I seemed too stiff? The HR for Alegent says that it is very competitive, and that it will make a difference when I get my BSN.
But here is what I donít understand. If I apply for a job, then get a second interview and get rejected after that interview, but my co-worker applies for that same job with less experience than me, and gets the job, I must have done something wrong?
And I do think body language may be an issue, I am not good at interviews. So any tips you can throw my way would be grand. And thanks for letting my squeal and here it is:
