Summer jobs


In a couple of weeks I will be finishing my junior year. I really wanted a job in the hospital this summer for more experience and to be more comfortable at clinicals. The difficulty has been that I live on campus at a school a little over an hour away from home, so this is a job I would only be able to do during the summer and breaks. So far I've applied to 10 patient care tech positions, 4 of them are "under review" but have been that way since April 4th. I emailed a different hospital and they told me they would only hire me as a tech if I agreed to work from them for 2 years after graduation. I'm not sure i want to commit like that so early. So my question is, are there other positions I could apply to just for the summer? Also, how long is too long for an application to be considered under review?

Thank you!

Long term car facilities are almost always hiring CNAs. It may not be the hospital job that you want, but it's still a great way to build a resume and experience.
