UTMB employment

  1. I will be relocating to Galveston in one month. My husband was accepted into medical school at UTMB. I have been trying to get a job with UTMB. I have been a nurse for one year and have been working a large, trauma one, county facility. I have filled out several applications, but when I call to follow up on applications I have been told that there is no way to follow up on an application. Without giving the lady my name, application number, social, etc., I was just told if my application is still active then it's been forwarded if I meet their qualifications and the manager of the unit would contact me if they wanted an interview. I understand how procedures work at county/state/government facilities...but I applied over one month ago. Has anyone out there ever applied to UTMB also? Or works at UTMB to offer some insight on their specific process.
    Thanks for any info!!

    Welcome to our corner of the world!

    Sorry you're having so much hassle with UTMB & I can't really provide any useful insight into that situation. However, you may want to look at other facilities within commuting distance if it's really important to get a job right away. Take a look at the Texas City & Clear Lake areas as well as Memorial Hermann Southeast. These are all on the I-45 corridor. Since you have experience, I am sure they will all be very friendly.

    I wouldn't recommend trying to get anything closer to Houston... not so far distance-wise, but the traffic can be a real nightmare.

    Thank you! I had been looking into the hospital in Texas City, but hadn't come across Memorial Hermann Southeast. I have looked and they certainly have some opportunities available that I am interested in. I appreciate your response!!
