My dream is to work in a NICU. I quickly realized that wasn't going to work as most required a lot of experience. I moved onto looking at pediatric jobs, unfortunately a lot of those jobs require experience. There are two children's hospitals in my town but only one has a residency program, I'm looking into it.
My question is, I have been out of school over two months, I have applied to many jobs and haven't heard back from any of them. I write cover letters, I have had my resume looked over, the only thing left is to start calling the hiring managers and hope they listen to me.
If I can't find a job in pediatrics/neonatal, should I move to adults? I've looked into postpartum but many require experience as well. I'm incredibly frustrated. I've heard its hard to go from caring for adults to children plus most pediatric jobs want pediatric experience.
What should I do?
