I am currently a CNA but am waiting to take my state test to be a STNA. I've decided to begin my job search now rather than after so I can have a bunch of numbers and such already lined up.
The problem is, I can't find any openings listed on websites or the newspaper. Does anyone have any tips to finding jobs that may not be listed? Not sure if places just don't want to waste the money on advertising or what.
Who should I contact at hospitals? Is it human resources? Is it wrong to just call and ask if they are hiring?
This is the first time I've ever had to actively search for a job. All my past jobs I've been approached about them.
Thank you very much!
Edit: Guess while we're on the topic of jobs, how often are new CNA/STNA's hired at hospitals? That is where I would like to work versus a LTC facility. Just a personal preference after being at a LTC facility (the *better* one in my area still wasn't that great...).
