Hi everyone, my name is Allana Akhtar and I am a reporter for Business Insider.
I report on different jobs, and I'm launching a feature on what it's really like to be a nurse. If you are a nurse and have a story to share, please fill out the survey at the bottom of this article: https://www.businessinsider.com/nurses-survey-what-is-the-hardest-part-about-being-a-nurse-2019-5
You can also email me if you have any other comments or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're not a nurse but know one, feel free to share this survey with your friends. I'm looking forward to hearing your stories!
I have been applying to several exercise physiologist (EP) jobs I have found local and out of state and bigger well known hospitals but have not gotten any word back from any of them in weeks now. Some a month. I send emails or leave messages with them each week to follow up and ask status but still nothing. I am sure things are slow due to the times but how can I have 6 (yes 6) applications out for the same types of roles and not have any responses at all after 4+ weeks? Is this normal now with delays and work from home matters at so many places? Or is it that EP jobs and departments at hospitals is now bottom of the priority list for critical positions needing filled right now? I am unemployed now and have been since return to USA Jan 1 so each day not working is killing me to not be working yet. #healthcare #hospitals #jobs #careers #unemployment
