Why, yes, I WOULD like some cheese with my whine, thanks!

  1. I am sitting here at work looking at a huge stack of resumes I have to slog through, and I am just SOOOO not in the mood. So far I have web-surfed, checked my voicemail, returned calls, gone to the bathroom, and wandered out to whine to my admin assistant that I don't want to review these.

    ("Don't, then," he shrugged with a grin. Could it be because after I review them, I give them back to HIM with notes on them like: "Send 'NO' letter please"; "Verify she wants FT employment, then send application please"?)

    So anyway, yeah, that's my biggest problem today, boo-hoo me, right? Anybody else have a petty, too-small-to-b-tch-about kinda b-tch? This is the thread!

    Let it all out, baby.

    Stargazer, do you by chance recruit for StarMed? (The Seattle branch?)

    Or Favorite Nurses?

    I think you said on the Seattle thread that you didn't work for HRN---

    Stargazer, hope your resumes are better than the ones I get.

    My boss sends me 50 resumes (we've advertised for a contract (fee-for service) registered nurse. We've advertised that you need experience, jail, ICU, CCU, or ER.

    What we got??? a few CNA's and a bunch of LVN's who thought 33.00/hr would be great.
    Most of the RN's were looking for F/T, most had NO experience, actually , only ONE of the resumes was what we were looking for and SHE wasn't available to start for 4 months!!!!

    Most of the resumes I get in response to our online ads are getting better, because I'm VERY, VERY specific about what the job entails and what the requirements are--but I still get the occasional LPN, CNA, nursing student, EMT/paramedic, physical therapist, what-have-you, who are just sure we can create their own specific job for them.

    I also tend to get a lot of home-health nurses and tele nurses who want to argue with me about the job requirements. (We also require ER or ICU/CCU experience). Sorry, but we've tried PACU, tele, and urgent-care nurses before--and they NEVER work out. I'm not saying you're a bad nurse--just that you don't have the experience I need.

    I don't understand the mindset. It wouldn't occur to me to walk onto an L & D unit, for example, and imagine that I had the first clue about what was going on, so why do some nurses disbelieve that they are not qualified for every nursing position? Everybody specializes these days. Even med/surg is now its own specialty.

    I hire docs, too. Imagine how many of them like being told--by a "mere nurse"--that they're not qualified? :chuckle:
    Saw the mention of starmed had to stop and read the rest of the posts.
