Hi every one,
I'm in the Midwest, job market is very bad. I graduated this May from a top ten university with a BSN degree and and a few honor awards. Plus, I have ten years of experience working as a nurse in another country. I am bilingual. I'm so frustrated that the job market seems to close in front of me. I've been applying for multiple places and have had three interviews so far. The first interview was great but people told before they even met with me that they did not have any opening for RN. THey would keep me on file The second interview was a phone interview phone interview with a recruiter from a health care system which is miles aways from where I live. She said "I'll call you in a week or two, if you don't hear any thing from me call me back". I'd been waiting and called her back after two weeks. She said "I sent the report to the recruiter manager and she'll contact you". The Manager hasn't called me yet. The third interview wasn't went well because I was so discouraged to hear that there were 56 cadidates for 2 openings. And yes, I received their letter today saying that they chose someone else. I probably did something wrong during the interview and really want to prepare for the next one. Please, anyone, give me some tips of how to prepare answering their questions such as strong points, week points, how to solve conflict with co-workers, why you want this job...I meant, my answers were not bad. I did research before the interview, read interview books, predicted the questions, learned the answers....still I failed. Please share your experience with job interview.
