I was down and hard on myself because it seemed like most of my classmates have gotten jobs. I kept on thinking, what is wrong with me? I graduated almost near the top of my class! I volunteer! I (think) my resume and cover letter rocks! Then one day, I read a post on allnurses.com that absolutely changed my life... You are reading page 3 of How I Got My Dream Job!. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

hey!

Congrats on your new job. I loved this article; I am sharing it with others as I know it will benefit them!

I was wondering if you could, when you have time, also send me the letter you sent to your DON? I am totally going to write one to the DON on the tele floor I am doing clinicals on. I just wanted to get a feel for what I should say or shouldn't say, lol.

Thanks and if you have any other cool tips let us know :)

Congratulations! That's a great story and you have to love sign on bonuses. I wish I would stumble across a job with a signing bonus. I thought they were just reserved for athletes, military personnel and stock brokers.

Being honest is huge. When I'm interviewing people I can usually tell when they're making things up. We've been interviewing people for a new position over the last few weeks. You would be amazed at how many people told me they were employed but when I asked them when they could start three of the people told me immediately. I'm really surprised that people don't understand that most employers want you to give your current employer a least two weeks notice. If someone isn't going to give their employer two week's notice it immediately raises a red flag. It shows that they'll probably do the same thing to us at some point. Unless they are a stellar candidate, I discount them right away.

Congratulations again for finding your job. It sounds pretty cool.
