New Grad Job Hunt

Keeping calm through it all by…

  • Staying Organized
    • Spreadsheet of pediatric new grad programs with important information such as when an application opens
    • Folders for each organization I am applying to include:
      • Resume
      • Cover letter
      • Information about the specific hospital
    • Word docs with information I can copy & paste into an application
      • One includes information usually asked on the application about work experience including contact information for supervisors, addresses, so it’s super easy to copy & paste
      • Another includes info about all my licenses & certifications, so it’s easy to enter information about them like license #, expiration date, etc
  • Being Resourceful
    • Reaching out, asking my friends, family, and other people who’ve been in my position for advice
      • It might be nerve-racking at first, but I’ve only gotten positive feedback
        • Shoutout to my amazing support system

      • My resume, cover letter, & interview skills have greatly benefited from their advice
    • Websites to follow
      • newgradnursehelp.com They have a ton of new grad programs posted on here from all around the U.S, super helpful if you are starting to look at new grad programs in your area
      • Facebook.com Believe it or not, I’m using FB & here’s how. I follow a bunch of New Grad Facebook groups where people ask questions and post resources all of the time. When I didn’t know a thing about applying to jobs as a new grad, I got a lot of my information from these groups
      • Grammarly.com Honestly, this app has been a lifesaver when it comes to quickly checking for errors in my writing. SO helpful
  • Practicing Self- Care
    • Facemasks, trips to Lush Cosmetics, spending time with family, playing tennis, and more
