I am a retired police officer from Indy with over 35 years experience and currently work for another hospital and I have submitted three applications and can’t even get interviewed. I’m not sure what u were looking for. I also know that u were hiring at the south location. I guess 35 years means nothing. #wordsofwisdom

Wow 35 years is amazing!! It's not YOU it's probably your resume. If it's missing a few things (such as keywords) then an employer won't even see it if the company uses what is called an applicant tracking system. This software basically scans through hundreds or thousands of resumes and looks for very certain criteria. You can read more about it in this article and how to get yours past the ATS. You can do this Nicholas and with your experience, you are a VALUABLE employee. We just need to get you on track : ) Let me know how else I can help!

Burnout. A term to describe the mental and physical exhaustion you experience when the demands of life around you consistently exceed the amount of energy you have available.

Sound familiar? Whether it's in your personal or work life, you've probably faced "burnout" at one point or another.

How do YOU stay motivated and prevent this feeling of being overworked? Share below!

Here are some things I do:

  • I try to take frequent, short breaks throughout my workday to boost my creativity and mood.
  • I try and give myself a few minutes of sunshine per day.
  • I try and practice 30 minutes of mindfulness/yoga per day.
  • I try and reduce my "screen time" before bed to help me get a better night sleep.

Theres alot of things that happened while I went to this school. The most unforgettable situation would have to be when I first realized how valuble taking risks are. Life is mostly about just that. I don't find myself as someone who gives up easily. I think it was during my Junior year that I realized that yes we do all encounter mistakes. All that matters is if we learn from them. Because when we learn from them, we are becoming the stronger version of ourselves. Thr thing about me that makes me very unique is that I always bring around this wonder. The wonder of what if? If I were to do this, what reprucussions could there be. This comes back to the idea of taking risks. In other words, going out of your way and do something new; something you never thought was possible. My class was and always will be the bedt class that I could be with throughout these 4 years of being here. The only thing I do is I close my eyes for one second and dream. Then I do everything I can to make that dream become a reality. Thats what keeps me awake at night. The thought of what if. What if the dreams I have been having were significant? I am always a puzzle. Nobody knows my exact combination.

Well, I thank you for taking the time to hear me out. All I will like to say or remind you of is to listen to others to understand and not to respond.
