Some hope for job searchers...

  1. Hey everybody! Just wanted to let you guys know that I was called 2 days ago for an interview on an application I submitted ELEVEN MONTHS AGO. I applied for an NA job to work some for experience and networking while I get through nursing school...submitted MANY applications to area hospitals, like probably in the neighborhood of 50 apps over a year. I'm fortunate enough to have a gift shop job and babysitting job to have supplemented our family income over the last year, but I'm super excited to get called for this interview! I mostly just wanted to post this because I had pretty much given up on applying for NA jobs- they all seemed to want more experience than I had (how do you get experience if you nobody will hire you, you know?). But now almost a year later I'm getting an interview and hopefully an offer if I really put the charm on ... So if you're still waiting on hearing about job apps, be patient! I guess good things really do come to those who wait sometimes. Hope you're all doing well. Xo!

    I got a call back from one place a year after I applied...but by then I had found a nursing job and wasn't really interested in working there anymore. It is important to be patient, yes...but that doesn't mean you shouldn't stop searching while you wait

    Good luck with your interview!
