Having trouble finding a job.
Save as Favorite
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer Dec. 2006 a few months after graduating from nursing school and passing the boards. I finished my last treatment April of 2008. When I attend jobfairs I'm asked why haven't I worked since graduation? I always answer honestly, because I feel like what I've been will help me be a better nurse. I am very confident that I will make a great nurse but after looking for almost 2 years, my confidence has fallen. One professional resume writer told me to state what I've been through on my resume. So, I did. i don't know what else I can do. I still attend job fairs, although the hospitals want you to do everything online & won't even take my resume. I apply for positions online, mostly new graduate positions since several hospitals have told me that is the only way they would hire me. But still nothing. I need help to know what to say to recruiters and how to explain anything on an online application. I feel like walking into the next job fair singing "Take a Chance on Me" by ABBA. Do you have any advise? Thank you. Lori
