My dream is to work at University of Chicago, preferably in the ED. I've been applying since October but have had no luck. They have not even looked at my application. I've heard that it is easier to get in if you know someone which unfortunately I don't. What is also holding me back is that i don't work in a trauma center now. Anyone have any tips?
I would love the ED but at this point I would start off in any unit and be happy. I guess there is always the opportunity to transfer units.
So any advice guys?
Have you thought about applying for a dept that you do have experience in? You can transfer to the ED after 6 months. I will say that you also might want to think about agency work to get your foot in the door. Hope this helps.
