I'm starting to get pretty discouraged with hunting for a GN position.
I will be graduating with my ADN in about a week, and so far I haven't had any luck with interviews! When I call to follow up all the HR departments tell me is "There is nothing we can do, sorry, we'll call you when we hear something".
I've never really had a job with a large company so I'm not really familiar with the right things to say to track down the right person. When I call they say that it's in the hands of the nursing recruiters or managers, but won't give me their names or numbers. Do I just need to do some stalking around to get the names of these people? I've tried dropping by as well and basically get shooed away in the same manner. They are always nice about it, but I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere. I call about once a week, and I always hear the same thing.. that I will be called back..but I started applying in late Feb/early March, so I think it's been enough time to be called by now. I haven't been super aggressive before because I was preparing for HESI, but now that I'm done with that I'm getting really anxious to find a job! A lot of my classmates already have internships.
Any words of advice? Or better yet, is anyone on here a nursing manager or recruiter?
Maybe I'm just not saying the right thing when I call.
