Partially employed for 6 weeks. I did find a weekend job, thankfully, and soon after I lost my job. I don't know why nobody looks at my resume, but the comments I have received were that I did not have enough "current" nursing experience. I am now working in a long term care facility, where I have fallen in love with my elderly patients, and think I am a good nurse, who cares for them and looks out for their welfare.

My project this week is to find a place to volunteer, so it does not look like I am staying home not looking for jobs and watching TV. I have spent 8 hrs a day looking for work for the past 5-6 weeks, so I have not been sitting on my laurels. A report on NPR suggested doing volunteer work to show that you are still a hard worker, etc. to prospective employers and it seems like a great idea. In fact, I had that idea on week 2 of unemployment, but then I go to busy applying for jobs online to do anything else. I am going to takea breather and try to get some volunteer work.

To all my fellow underemployed people...let's keep on trying!!!!
