How difficult is it to get an interview with the recruiter? Many people say that the best thing to do is just show up and wait for the recruiter to see you, others say to just email and/or fax your resume, what's your take?

Also, does anyone know what is going on with HHC hospitals and hiring during the last month? Some say there is a freeze currently..

Discuss..

when you email your resume you will get an automatic response about receiving lots of resumes and so forth. Follow up with a phone call to the nurse recruiter by name. Then show up and say I understand you are very busy and I just wanted to make sure you got my resume. Sometimes you have to persist.

My mom works at Elmhurst Hospital and she said they're on a hiring freeze. I emailed my resume through the HHC website and I got a call back the next day from the nurse recruiter stating to call her after I pass my NCLEX for her to set up an interview. I don't know if maybe she recognized the name because she knows my mom but others in my class have said they haven't heard back or got that same message you got. I didn't specify that my mom works there though.

I heard Queens Hospital is hiring and they're a part of HHC.

I work for a private hospital in Manhattan, but was taken back by the fact that a city/public hospital (Elmhurst) would be so disorganized. Emails and faxes sent to the recruiters office barely get seen due to the overwhelming amount of resumes that come through those mediums(As mentioned by a staff member!!).

Yet, when I visited the hospital(twice), not once was the recruiter in her office any earlier than 12 noon. 12 NOON!! Who the heck starts work at 12 Noon to then leave by 4pm (Mon-Fri)??? Am I missing something?

I was just curious in finding out more about Per Diem work that they might be offering over the summer, since it's a little closer to home than my present hospital (NYU).

Although the state is currently going through the motions with regards to balancing their budget with the new governor and all, it shouldn't leave the HHC hospitals in such a tangle that they can't even manage their potential flow of staff.

Odd, but I guess that's the nature of a city job..

I don't know much about it but when the nurse recruiter called me back it was before 10am. Maybe just because she isn't in her office doesn't mean she's not working. Sometimes there are meetings and things that they can't be in their office all the time. My mom is an Associate Director for one of the areas at Elmhurst and she gets to work at 8am but many days doesn't even make it to her office until later in the day because of the tons of things she is expected to do before. And if they're on a hiring freeze, I guess there is not much the nurse recruiter can do. :)

I'm not defending them, just trying to see the other side of the story. (I'm a glass half full person). lol.
