As you all know, the job market in California is terrible for new grads! After trying unsuccessfully to land a job after graduation, I finally decided to take a position at a hospital here on the East Coast. I absolutely love my job, and I'm learning so much, but to be honest I'm really not loving living here. I miss the sunshine, I miss the food, and most of all I miss my friends!
My goal now is to finish out the year here and move to L.A. I have a BSN plus a previous master's, and the hospital where I work now is very well-respected--so my credentials are good. But I'm just hoping that that will be enough to open up some doors for me back west! I'm wondering if any former new grads were able to land a job back home after a year away? And if so, how you did it, when you started applying, etc.
I would be grateful for any advice. I think that hearing some success stories from people who were in my position would really help lift my spirits on this cold and rainy day!
