Applying to Kaiser Permanente

Posted

Has 8 years experience.

Kaiser in my area hires LVN's right now in northern California.

I am a new grad LVN with 5 months of experience and currently hold 2 different LVN positions.

I have been applying with Kaiser for over 4 years even for basic patient transporting jobs,etc.

I have never received an email that didn't say that i either did not meet the qualifications ( when i even checked the qualifications per position that i fit) or that the position had been given away to someone else.

Was told that Kaiser HR doesn't go through every application themselves and that they have a computerized application and resume checker that scans for certain wording/words within a applicants resume, and if it sees a keyword that it likes, it will send the resume directly to the HR so that they make contact you. Dont know if this is true or not, but cant get in for anything.

I know I am not the best at resumes and need help on this as well,which I am told needs certain keywords like Blood-borne Pathogens, etc... still need to update

Does anyone have any experience on this topic?

I also have been applying to Kaiser for over four years as a CNA/PCY and never received a call back. I recently bumped into a woman who used to work at kaiser as an unit secretary and she also said to get hired at kaiser its all about the "keywords" and "buzz words" matches in your resume. I'm also working on recreating my resume to apply again. Wish you the best on your journey :)
