Almost didn't answer the phone...
The call came up PRIVATE number. But I remembered that I am not screening anymore and answered it. HR phone interview for an Acute care position at LARGE teaching hospital in the valley. Ummm... yeah so crazy! I got past the computer. I got past the the "no new grads", and the HR phone interview screening, to a live in person interview on Friday. I am sure that I won't get much further in the process, no current BSN in a job market saturated with qualified BSN students, but it's like they say, "It's an honor just to be nominated." I mean seriously it really is a trip.
How to sell myself to the next stage... I wish they could call my references first! They LOVE me! LOL. I am not a good interview I must admit. I always think of so many things I want to say afterward. But I impress on the floor! (Case in point my very first nursing job has called and asked if I would come back now that I have my RN and they knew that was why I left.)
So anyway..Can I do the job? Heck yeah! I am awesome! LOL Do I want the job? Heck ummm maybe? LOL Well it's not really my dream job and I know it'll suck, but it'll be awesome at the same time. So much to learn and skills to hone and all the cool toys! LOL Yeah I am a goober. It's Neuro btw.
Needless to say, I am shopping tomorrow for a suit coat to go with my skirt, courtesy of my NCLEX tutoring gig... here's hoping I get to the panel interview and beyond.
(Don't worry though I have a lot of irons in the fire right now when it comes to making the most out of the new RN)
