Short answer, nothing wrong with it. Go for it.
Longer answer is a post I did this morning to RNs seeking nursing positions. I think this post works for you as well. Hope it helps!
You asked for help so here it it, free. What you have is fear. What do you do to conquer fear? Immediate and consistent action. What you don't have is a plan. Here is one that works. Every time.
First, go to www.kencoleman.com. Review the website. Listen to the Ken Coleman Show podcast, it is free. Ken is the country's leading authority on how to find a job. Go to the public library and order his book the Proximity Principle, it is free.
The way the Proximity Principle works is that you have to find the place where people are doing what you want to do and associate with them. Then you have to find people that can help you get into the position that you want. Just Saturday a total stranger called me and said that somebody gave her my name and number and told her that she should call me and ask if we had any positions open. I was not offended, I was impressed this person would call me and ask. She must be a go getter! But even better is finding someone that can walk your resume into a hiring manager and recommend you. You are no longer on the bottom of a stack of resumes at that point, you are in the hands of the hiring manager or recruiter. Getting seen is the goal. Who do you know that works where you want to work? Who do you know that knows someone that works where you want to work? Most people want to help other people. You just want information. You are not asking for a job. I just helped a friend get her daughter's resume into the hands of a recruiter. I have not even started work at my new job but I was comfortable enough to send her resume to the recruiter. Recruiters and hiring managers want to hire people for the positions they have open. You are not a burden to them, you are what they seek. Join church or other job hunting groups. I did this even when I knew I could easily get a job. Talking about what you are doing to find a job is a great encourager. You also may make some great contacts. You may also get an accountability partner out of it. Okay, there is your plan. Ready, Set, Go!
When my wife and I graduated from nursing school I immediately got a job working at the one and only hospital in town. My soon to be wife wanted L&D but did not get hired. She missed the hiring deadline for graduate nurses. She took a job at a local nursing home and hated every minute of it. We thought we were captured by where we lived. Then one day I decided that I wanted to live on the coast and work for a big hospital in a big town. I sent out about a 100 letters (no internet back then!) and I got back 52 offers of employment! Even more interesting my wife got her dream job! Just because where you are doesn't work doesn't mean you are doomed (double negative intended.) You got to get to where you can do what you want to do. Come to Memphis, TN, we have 100s of RN jobs that need to be filled!
Nothing in your original post led me to believe that you are in financial distress. But if money is a concern then go back to the library and get a copy of Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover." Get your financial house in order. Find Financial Peace.
So what is the biggest killer of the plan? Procrastination! Go back to the library and get a copy of "No Excuses!" by Brian Tracey.
You have a new job! Your job is to find the position you want and go after it. Eat! Sleep! Exercise! Pray! Meditate! And Work like no other so you can get that position you want!
Ready, Set, Go!
