1) Buff up the resume
3) Promote your strong qualifications that are transferable to the job you’ve applied.
4) Obtain good references
5) Dress professionally for the interview
6) Follow up with applications if no word after 2 weeks.
I’d highly recommend using professional and searchable resources such as indeed.com, LinkedIn.com and Glassdoor.com. I receive at least three contacts for open jobs per day based on my searchable resume through indeed.com.
Find interview events at local hospitals and have them place you on their job openings notification list. I get weekly notifications from one hospital I interviewed with even though they had just filled the position I interviewed for.
