Well....I've gone from living on my computer studying for the derned NCLEX, to living on it for the mighty job hunt. I finally have everything I need to fill out those bloody 4 hr aps at the ready so I can finish them in about an hr. My job experience is a joke except my teaching stint, but that was 17 yrs ago!! My last place of employment was bulldozed, so I have to say, I'm not looking so impressive on paper in that area. Oh well. I keep telling myself that if they really want me...and let's face it, who wouldn't want a nearly 50 yr old new grad????! Yep, I'm all that and a bag o chips. So...on first impressions, there appears to be NO jobs for new grads, so....this is what I did: all the jobs I found that did not have a time frame of experience specified, I applied to. So, in the last 2 days, I've applied for about 10 jobs. I know that they'd prefer someone experienced, but I can hope & pray, right?
Well I am headed back to the gym. My back is in pain from all this butt sitting. Have a lovely wknd. And good luck to those of you who have gone back to school, have a killer semester!
