Hi there!

My fiance and I relocated to the East Bay a few months ago for his job and I am struggling to find work. I have one year of inpatient float pool experience and 5 months of outpatient oncology experience coming from the Chicago area.

I'm looking for advice that anyone can give on ways to find a job here or where to look! I have submitted over 50 applications to Kaiser, Sutter, JohnMuir, and some other smaller companies with no luck. Also looked at some travel nursing job posts I have seen but do not have 2 years of experience to qualify.

I appreciate any advice! Thanks!!

Hi. How far away are you looking at? South Bay? North Bay? The farther away from the city you are, I imagine the chances are better.

@db2xs I'm currently in the Walnut Creek area but will be moving to the North Bay this Summer. I've been looking pretty much everywhere in the east bay and north bay as far up as Sacramento

Right now, you might not have any luck at all due to the pandemic - at least for regular f/t positions.  Bay Area is tough to crack as it is and now w/ all the COVID-19 cases, a lot of regular employees have their hours cut.

Sonoma County is a good suggestion.  Not sure if you want to go even more north, but places in the Shasta/Redding area are probably a good bet as well.

If OP is willing to drive to Sac from the East Bay, Sonoma County will be nothing. 

I'm unsure what is going on with hiring during this pandemic but for sure if someone has ICU/ED experience, that would work out. If someone is willing to go to another state during this time, e.g., NY, then boom, easy work--and they can go as a traveller.
