New Grad looking for work for 6 months

  1. I graduated from FIU in May 2012 with my BSN. I have been looking for jobs within 50 miles of Miami, and have applied to numerous jobs. While my friends get hired because of connections, or my other friends occasionally have an interview, I get nothing for my attempts.
    I really don't know what I'm doing wrong. Does anyone have any advice or information on some jobs I could apply for? I'm willing to do any specialty.

    It is extremely hard to get a job in south Florida. Almost impossible. Your not alone. Every new grad is having the same problem as you. I've probably applied to over 300 applications and got 1 call back and got turned down to due to a lack of experience. Good luck.

    If you are willing to move look into hospitals in orlando or try Shands in Gainesville. They hire new grads all the time. Just be prepared to stay a while because even with experience its hard to find a job down south. Speaking from personal experience...

    I know it's tough down there because it's even extremely competitive to get into schools in miami. I'm currently a ”miamian” living in georgia and gonna give school a shot up here. I miss my home town sometimes, especially going down that 107th ave, ha! I bet dolphin mall is as crowded as always. I really wish you luck, don't be afraid of having to relocate, even out of state. Do what you need to do for your career.
