6 Powerful and Effective Tips to Find a Nursing Job Career Opportunity Sooner Than You Expected

Are you a registered nurse and still looking for a job?  Do you have the experience and skill needed but your employer does not provide you with exciting career challenges?  Do you seek to work abroad for greener pasteur?

Whether you are a pro or a beginner nurse, finding a nursing job isn’t easy nowadays in the Philippines.  Not only it is a time consuming and a frustrating process, it also robs you of the opportunity to focus on your career growth and stability

The biggest piece of the puzzle on any job search process is to know where and what to look for in a nursing position that is suited for you.  And being proactive here will surely mean so much for you when you are ready to go to work.

We have designed the following 6 powerful and effective tips (and tricks) to take some of the headache out of your search, by giving you some directions and guidance on the steps you need to take to find a job opportunity that is your ideal nursing job.

1. Pay a visit to recruitment or human resources department of hospitals, medical centers and doctor’s offices to inquire about the availability of nursing positions.  If there are no vacancies, please offer your resume to remain on their file and ask them to call you should their future openings match your skills.

2. Call nursing recruitment and contract employment agencies. This is a one-to-many strategy.  Aligning yourself with a nursing headhunter can give you access to jobs that are often not advertised to the public. The best thing about recruiting agencies is they allow you to apply for positions at multiple companies simultaneously with a single resume submission. The recruiters will be the one to match your resume to all of the available nursing job openings.  Once you have a match, they will surely call you.

3. Search the Internet.  Searching for work for nurses or nursing jobs on the internet will reveal hundreds of available job opportunities for you. Just be aware that the competition for these open positions is tough since hundreds, if not thousands, of other nurses are also looking at and applying for the same jobs ad.

4. Train for Free.  When you don’t have work, then try to gain experience by working for free while you are waiting.  By doing so, you are helping the community or the local hospital within your vicinity. This is one of the best ways to get your feet in the door of the medical profession and also gain experience. Experience in real world hospital care is normally a plus to employers especially if you are a new nurse.  Consequently, it also gives you a chance to evaluate the organization and nursing department to ensure it is a match with your expectations before applying for the post for the long haul.

5. Check your school.  Your Alma Mater often has available positions in the nursing school’s dean’s office or else they can refer you to another organization. Nursing dean advisors are also excellent sources of information on how to network in the industry and get your foot in the door. They are often asked by potential employers who seek fresh nursing graduates rather than experienced nurses. You can ask your former nursing professors too to help you out.

6. Power of Networking. Get your friends, family, and casual acquaintances involved in the search.  Through them, other people and organization will know that you are on the market searching for work. Most companies nowadays would hire those that have been recommended and fully vouched for by acquiantances. So it’s really important to spread the news that you are available and seeking a new job opportunity in nursing.

Finding a nursing Job and career opportunity is not an easy task.  But Filipinos are known for their resourcefulness.  if there’s a will, there’s a way.
