I took my state boards a month ago and passed (woohoo) now it's time for a job. I'm getting e-mails saying that they have already filled the position or looking at other applicants more quickly than I am sending them out.
I'm seeing lots of people from my class getting jobs right away and getting their dream jobs. It's quite discouraging.
I'm thinking maybe it's something with my resume. I'm not sure. So if anyone can please take a look at my resume and give me some advice that would be much appreciated. Thank you so much,
OBJECTIVE: Caring, enthusiastic individual seeking to obtain a registered nurse position that will provide an opportunity to strengthen my clinical skills and critical thinking in a hospital environment. To learn new technical nursing competencies to develop professionally as a registered nurse.
