There is a reason they have job openings, they just cant keep staff. But, it's a good place to get your 1 year of experience and move on.

    Hey I got a job in KC. Interviews started to pop. I also have seen new grad postings for December at several hospitals. Hopefully you all will too.

    I know people in my graduating class in Dec 2010 didn't get jobs until that summer..and I think some are still searching for jobs. I got an SSM job with FUTURES and they said over 250 people applied and they gave jobs to less than 70 people. I got lucky. Good luck.. Honestly you're not alone. I have heard this a lot!!
