I have been out of work since Nov. 2016. I have been fortune enough to be able to work for a nursing agency since then. Heres my issue. I cant seem to get past losing my job. I still wake up everyday saying oh I should be at work doing this or that. I try really hard to put it behind me. I worked the same job for 30 years. I cry because I miss it. I know I must move forward,I do try. I absolute hate what I am doing now,I do it because I need the money. I get excited about some of the jobs I apply for, but then bam,not even a call for an interview.I ask myself if I am not getting a call for the job then who is? I am very experienced and confident that I am a good nurse. I wake up every day trying to have purpose,I find myself not knowing which direction to go. I guess I am still waiting for a call for a full time job that dosnt come. At this point I am so frustrated
Getting up everyday for 30 years becomes a habitual pattern. Lie any habit it takes time to rearrange and train your brain that the status quo has changed. Like an addict going thru withdrawal. Invest yourself in a hobby, volunteer work while you are waiting for your next opportunity. Volunteer work often networks and can open a new door for you. Your type of employment does not define you. It's merely what you did to earn $$$. Allow yourself to find the real you and not what you did for a living
Sorry that your upset. And I really don't blame you. In todays world it's about the almighty dollar. I have found that they rather hire a graduated nurse (And pay her less) then to hire an experience Nurse like yourself (Which means you should be paid more), It's very sad to what nursing has come to...but facts are facts. I am having the same problem too (Been a nurse for 25 years). Don't give up!!! I get frustrated too...but keep on trying!!!!
Nurse and can't find a job? Very strange.
I have 1000 emails and 100s calls from all kinds of Recruting agencies. I got offered full time, part time, pier diem, relocation bonuses, just a sign up bonuses, 16 weeks sign up bonuses. I have full time job and many pier diem jobs as I wish.
Where you locating ? Consider to change location and willing to travel. Open your horizons. Just google traveling nurse .
First Robin I'm so sorry you lose employment that you have a passion for. When a person is in a job they like doing it help getting up in the morning. I feel though that God our creator wants you somewhere else. Not that he will not allow you to be nursing again but he's lining up the job for you. He might even want you to advise some random person about health situation who would never be where you used to work. I myself don't always understand God's will but I Live by faith. Pray, keep your head, and your new nursing job is right around the corner. You ever know what greatness he has coming your way!!!
Robin I feel you but don't let it get you down. I was working at one job for 21 years and I though that I would retire from there and then it happen I got laid off. Didn't what I was going to do. After 1 month of not working I decided to go back to school for 10 months in a completely different field. So I completed it and found a job right away but that only lasted for 6 months. So I decided to started my own business and now Ive been on my own for 11 years now. So that was the best thing that happened to me. I have my life back and I'm my own boss. So cheer up and find something your good at and GO for it.
I was laid off twice in one year. I was evicted from my apartment on a Friday. Saturday my car was reposessed and then on Sunday I found out my then fiance had slept with my sister and I called the wedding off. I cried everynight . I had no job, no place to live and no man!!! Many times I felt like giving up but I didn't. The reason I didn't is because I have a child. What healed me and got me out of bed was the power of prayer. I got down on my knees and I prayed to God. God healed my soul. Within a month I got a job as administrative assistant. After that my church helped me find an apartment. Right now 2017 I am teaching middle school and I found a man who loves God and adores me!! The power of prayer will change your life if only you believe! !!
I've been out of work since March 2016 almost a year now. I was a work comp adjuster for 20+ years. I have applied for those jobs and many other and have had interviews and get no response or I don't hear back at all after submitting my resume. I am an expert in my field and intelligent enough to do many other jobs. I have a degree also. I don't know what the problem is unless it's age discrimination or some other unknown factor but I am beyond frustrated.
Am so sorry you are experiencing this. I cannot find employment either. Have tried and tried, to no avail. I am almost60 years old. Graduated highest honours while raising two children. Graduated in 2010. Was working at a home complex, and nepotism won out over my position. Mother hired daughter. Now am back too feeling frightened, insecure, and defeated.
I feel like I know how you feel. I have been out of work since oct 2016 and I also had worked at my job a long time, 23 years. I did however get a few interviews this week and a good job offer today. Up until then I hadn't gotten anywhere. A recruiter I spoke with told me Nov and Dec are terrible times to try to find a job as it is usually the end of the fiscal year. Now that it is January hopefully you will have more luck. I wasn't getting anything, no interviews or even responses to my app's. January hits and I have even had people connecting with me first. Good luck. Im sure the right job will come your way soon.
I remember,one of my brother in law who lost of job because of he refused to assist to a doctor of abortion, and he lost his job for a reason, but he never stopped to praise God and thanks given of praying, then a month's ago he got a new job and he lost again because he leave only two days for his wife who gave birth and cesarean,but when he came back his work the company lost his work,, ,the hospital said he was new he must not to leave.. he didn't lost hope to God... his prayer,that there is an employee will understand his situation,because two company lost his work, and he must to tell the truth when applying a job... praise God! the hospital that he serve now, they said they r all wrong, here we are welcome like that situation, we will accept you as a full time , he only try to applied as a partime because his friend a nurse too has a vacation leave and he try to apply as a partime only but the hospital accept him as a full time, praise God.. that's why we will not stopped to talk to God what inside of us, we will not lost hope.. let the holy spirit will working on us, just ask to God what you will do ,talk to God.. your God, there is a purpose everthing... I saw there are many hiring job of nursing ... I am sure you can find, look at the world map, what did you see and notice, what space you stand on. the world map is so very wide and very big. and . you stand like a one pc. of a sand... and they said if you'll see the world map,you can notice and see how it is wider and big hope that God's given to us, how many people in this world and there are coming born and not yet born that you will serve of your profession.. how many hospitals and sickness waiting your serve..just believe your self that you will find the one that your future carer prepared for u..don't give up to find ...until you find one day.
