While she looks for a permanent job, DD found a temp job (actually 2 of them) on Craigslist to give flu clinics.

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that she gets the job in the ped office! Great about the flu clinics, too. Anything remotely related to her field has got to be a good thing! Keep us posted!

Hi Liz,
Sounds like a good indication if they are having her come join the team in observation...both can see if personalities won't conflict. My girlfriend's son had the same experience before he got his offer.

Can you believe flu season is right around the corner! Are you wearing sweaters at night now?

"Working interviews" are very common in healthcare, where seeing what the applicant's skills are like, and how the person fits into the team, are very important.
I've noticed that they've bled out into the general population these days, where people are so hard up for a job, they'll SAY they know ANYTHING.

I don't think she actually got to do anything, probably for liability reasons she couldn't touch the patients.

That's great that she getting these flu clinic jobs. That could probably keep her somewhat busy for the next 6 weeks.

What did she think of the pediatrician's office, would she like to work there? That's nice that they're hiring an RN because often they use Medical Assistants instead, RNs can probably command a higher salary.

Good luck to your dd, keep us posted.

She did like the office near our house--they have 3 MDs and I think she said 4 NPs.

Sounds like she's got some possible opportunities, and I wish her luck! Anything she does in her field is good for the resume, and it's also a good way to network. Any word on the pediatrician's office job yet (the one close to home)?

Has your dd had any luck yet in finding a permanent job?
