I'm an RN since 2007 but never been employed in a hospital. I remember printing out a list of hospitals in Metro Manila that same year. I can't count the number of resume I've passed, I waited for "the call" but I did not received any. I did not waste my time, I did hospital tours again the following year. The result was very frustrating. I've earned certificates from paid trainings and seminars but it just didn't catch the eyes of the people in the HRs. All through those years, I did not believe in the BACKER POWER.. not until someone in the Fort Bonifacio General Hospital HR asked me if I know someone from there... Well of course, again, I was never called because I didn't have that "someone". I got tired and finally decided to work in a call center while searching for that "someone". I could cry but yes, I found that person after 5 years so I resigned my work. With no guarantee that I will be hired, I rendered my free services for 3 months which ended April 10 this year. Now, I'm a bum looking for the new "someone". I feel so desperate now. Though single, I'm 30 and I fear that my chance of getting hired here in the Philippines is already to slim. Can I get hired without work experience?
