I am a nurse who has just moved to Houston late September with my (now) husband. I have 10 years of nursing experience, 9 in my specialty (neonatal intensive care) AND a master's degree in neonatal nursing as well as my permanent TX RN license and excellent references. I have been applying for nursing jobs since July and have applied for at least 15 jobs (probably more)...I am so frustrated! Every single application comes with another set of bs things to do, copy and paste your resume and then type all of the same info into your application, take another odd behavioral test or personality questionaire (I would never choose to blow up an airplane full of people, nor would I choose to torture people EVER, why do I have to pick one over the other, and what the heck does that have to do with babies?) I did not get a single response to any of my applications until I actually physically moved to TX. HR people have left messages for me, which I promptly return (as in minutes after they called), and then called back every few days, never to hear from them again. Most recently I had an HR person call (after my 4th application...different postings, same position) who was so excited about my qualifications she wanted me to come in the next day for a face to face interview...which I couldn't do because I had an early morning flight. She said someone would call me to schedule an interview when I got back, which was 2 weeks ago. I've called and left messages for this HR person, guess what? NO CALL BACK! I've had telephone interviewers that never call or call HOURS late. To top it all off, my husband is really pushing me to get a job and that in itself is stressing me out!
Anybody out there have any words of wisdom, encouragement, or support for me?
