............to get a job???? Oh, I never should have quit mine! I had no idea that getting even an entry level job would be SO competetive!!
I make the resume, draft the cover letters, buy the suit, I suffer the interview anxiety (now on top of the nursing school anxiety), I smile, I interview with 2+ people each place, same stupid questions, I write the thank you letters.. BLAH BLAH BLAH!!
Then I get REJECTED!! Does wonders for the self esteem lemme tell ya!
I know, I am way too hard on myself, but still...
Ok, so I went to this interview with this hospital that I REALLY REALLY REALLY want a job with. I have been applying there for eons. Anyway, a patient financial rep position came up that is per diem (only drawback, but OK I guess during school, especially if they have tuition reimbursement!
) I went and interviewed, all seemed to go super. I spent 2 hours writing 2 thank you letters. Within 48 hours I got a call back to say that the manager I interviewed with had selected someone else but wanted to refer me to the same job in another dept (ER). He put in a good work to that manager.
BUT.......the HR lady called me just to say my app and "good word" was now out there with this other manager and that the position closes (they stop taking apps) Monday, so I should hear by Thursday........but only to come in for ANOTHER INTERVIEW!! Uggghh. I mean, I'll do it, but how sucky. It is like I have to start all over. Plus, they are keeping the position open to get more applicants so it is not like they just shut it down for me! She said I interviewed well and they want to refer me to this job.......but all I did was get put in that applicant pool. I STILL have NO JOB.
I just want this so bad! It pays more than I thought and in the ER I would get to work around all different medical personel. Great experience!
Big Question........when I interview again it will be with a different manager but the same HR lady I guess. Is it OK to wear the same suit?? I shelled out big $$ for this thing at Petite Sophisticate and have nothing else. Do I have to go shopping now........again??? I have no money!! Please tell me I don't! Or will it look bad if I wear the exact same outfit??
Any other tips on how to secure this job? I asked her when I should contact her again if I did not hear from anyone and she said by next Thursday, but I don't know what else I can do at this point. I am so afraid I will blow it with the other manager. She said I interviewed good and that I was totally qualified for the job, so why am I NOT GETTING THE JOB? Do you think it is just because it is a different manager??
Sorry for the rant. Thanks!!
