Just wanted to drop a note of encouragement to my fellow new grads (I graduated May 11th) I was very nervous and unsure of what to expect and what to do in looking for my first job. I have no previous healthcare related experience because I have only had factory jobs. I submitted an online application about 5 weeks ago for a hospital about 100 miles from where I live, where I decided a long time ago that I work at someday, received no response and got discouraged. So, about two and a half weeks ago, knowing that I had to get up my nerve and find a position, I sent my resume to a local hospital, got a call from them 4 days later, set up an interview for today and got hired on the spot!(With the pay and benefits being much better than I anticipated!!):monkeydance:

My point is this- you can find the right fit for you in the place that you least expect it. If you don't get an offer from your first choice, don't let it get you down....just look around because there is somewhere out there for you. Good luck everyone!

aww, thanks for the words of encouragement! i graduate as an lpn in july '06, but because i was starting college for the first time i had to put finding a job on hold, and also because i was scared to start working, just a little though! so about jan '07 i decide to start looking for a job, and mostly went to agencies, who told me it would be hard to place me because i have no experience. so i land a job about 2wks ago, had a horrible preceptor, and then was let go by the don, for silly reasons. i recieved some employment links from fellow allnurses users and have applied to them and even more. i feel discouraged, but your story has helped me, i am confident that i will find something- gotta love nursing. good luck in you new job, wish me luck!;)
