hard to find a job


I am having an extremly hard time trying to find a job in the Georgia area, its almost as if you need to know someone to get a job. I have been in georgia almost a month and i have been on 4 interviews with one clinic and 3 home health agencies. i have 1.5 years experience on a cardiac/med surg/pre & post op unit.5 years of healthcare experience as a LPN. Does anyone in the georgia area know of any facilities hiring.

R u LPN or RN? The reason I ask is because I know several hospital that have stopped hiring LPNs.

Knowing people and getting referrals are helpful. My hospital only hired a bunch of new grads recently but we r broke so we aren't hiring even though we are in dyer need of RN full time positions. But I'm on the south Atlanta side of town. I wish I could help you more.

I'm not sure what area u live in but Piedmont Henry is hiring

Grady is hiring as well. You are experienced, so I am sure they would extend you a offer if they like how you interview :)

Have you considered some type of interview review course or rehearsed your interview in front of a friend?

I had a mock interview when I was graduating and everything went well and sometimes I do go over some questions with my cousin because she works in HR and conduct many interviews

Hospitals around here are hard to get into. Try applying to residency programs (even though you have experience). Also, I found my most recent job (in peds PACU) on Craigslist. Can't hurt to look there!

I have been trying Craigslist also, north side hospital residency program next opening is in the spring time.i need to check around with other hospital residency programs thanks @afterseasons

Sorry to respond so late- I work at Northside and they have a med/surg internship for the fall they are accepting applications for. Hope that helps!
