I was fortunate to work as a float PCT during nursing school on a variety of units, Med-Surg, PCU, ICU, Post-Partem, Med-Surg, psych, CSU, NICU. I will admit... NICU was one of my favorites. However, I ultimately determined that it didn't matter where I ended up, just wanted to have a good manager and team. I only had one interview, and that was after the NCLEX. I jumped at the chance. It was Med-Surg. It had to be God ordained thing. No other way to explain how I didn't get all of the jobs that I thought I wanted and the job that I needed called me, out of the blue and asked if I could interview. My manager has helped shape me for the better both as a nurse and as a person. She has some serious leadership skills and has done amazing things with our unit in the few short years that I have been there. I'm super glad that I didn't get what I THOUGHT I wanted. Keep an open mind throughout, and during your interviews, consider the person interviewing you, Ask them questions... This COULD be your future manager. Would they be a good leader, mentor? If not, then keep looking. If so, consider it even if it isn't your "dream job".
