At this point, I will drive to just about anywhere for a foot in the door I have applied all over the states of NC/SC (licensed in NC) hoping for at least an interview. Good luck to you.

Apply to every new grad position they have posted. A job is better than no job, even if it's not the one you necessarily want. Meduflex was hiring a lot of them a while ago, but I haven't checked recently to see if they still are.

Trust me when I say that I have not been "picky". I am applying to any RN position that says new grad or 1+yr experience "preferred". I have never heard of Meduflex, but I will be googling them now

OleTomCat, not sure how well the hiring managers like strangers showing up on their floors with a resume in hand. I have been going through the hospitals online application process, hoping that my resume gets put in the right hands. It's a tough market for new RN's, but I figure the universe knows where she wants me, and I need to learn patience, which is definitely not my strongest virtue

I have. Unfortunately, they are not hiring any new grads at this time. Thanks, though!

Those people get thousands of Resume's each and every day, you have to stand out....

Make them look at yours and remember you, putting a face to a resume really helps that...

Normally, I would say that is good advice but many places of employment tend to frown upon this especially professional positions. They don't want people showing up unannounced and introducing themselves, as they expect all things to be done online. It really is more of a burden for them. Sad huh? Many places won't even accept a resume in person, it all has to be done electronically.

The others are right on in their responses...sad isn't it?

One occasion where we were treated as rude as any place we have ever set foot was in the HR office at one of the local hospitals when we attempted to drop off a resume in person. This was a resume for a 10 year critical care RN, but they would not hear of it. We were told they would not even answer any questions in a VERY direct way, and pointed to the web site for anything we might want to know.

Not to say you shouldn't show up with resume in hand. Just be prepared for anything that may come at you if you do.
