My wife told me tonight that she would be totally cool about moving to Hawai'i if I found a job there or on one of the other islands. I was like, Sweet! So, I was wondering, how hard is it to get a job? I have 9 months experience with long term care and inpatient oncology. Are there any particular hospitals on any of the islands who would take in a newer nurse?
It would be a dream to work and live in paradise. I'm an avid windsurfer and stand up paddler too.
Any tips or words of advice would be appreciated.
Kind of a silly question, but is anybody superstitious or slightly obsessive when it comes to applying for jobs? For example, do you only call recruiters at a certain time of day or do you stare at your phone expecting it to ring for a job?
This is a silly topic, but they way the job market is now, I wouldn't be surprised if this was considered normal. Ha!:)
Are there any unemployed RN's on this forum who are doing any volunteer work to keep their resume's looking sharp and active? I'm considering it and would love to hear some thoughts or advice on it. Is it something that will look good on your resume as being at least proactive? I've thought of volunteering for the American Heart Association or even at a hospital.
Thanks in advance and have a great holiday season!
I would say this is typical. The process is generally slow, but when your looking for a job and finally had the interview, every hour that passes, is pretty much like torture.
Try to chill and enjoy the holidays is the best advice. Do you mind if I ask where you flew to for the interview?
Congrats and good luck!
Hi guys and gals,
It's a crappy job market and economy. I was just wondering what my fellow umemployed new grads were doing while they are job hunting and pulling out their hair. I'm just finishing up my last couple flu clinics while still looking for a job. What about you? Are you parking cars or working at Starbucks just to make a few dollars until you land that nursing position?
I'm curious what the responses are.
