11 months total time didn’t work
gap reason: tending to family illness
went through 8 interviews until finally landing a position
maintained current certs during time off, i.e. BLS, ACLS, CCRN, etc didn’t get any new certs
previous employment...I made it a point to place contact number with HR number, not my immediate boss. Nor did I mention my immediate boss.
First few interviews is nerve racking and shows the nervousness. It gets better. Think of interviews as practice
big companies that I want to eventually work for I saved for the future...meaning I did not want to apply while in mandatory program. I will apply and save the dream job after monitoring.
I did not intend to say my constraints until after I’m extended an offer. (Everyone different on this issue)
last, to make myself more employable?? Be confident and reassuring during interview. When it comes to the past, own it and accept it. I didn’t apologize for it. I regretted it and made me a better person today. Bad decisions have consequences. Boom! Got the job!
