Hospital Jobs for Fresh Graduates
Five years ago, at the height of the fame of hospital jobs, high school graduates were aspiring to take up medical-related degrees, specifically nursing, and fly out of their country after graduation to earn more for their family. Now, with the scarcity of hospital jobs, most nursing graduates opt to apply for jobs that are not related to their degree program. Many are interested with this kind of job but the benefits are not interesting. Furthermore, it's true that it's hard to land a hospital job but it isn't impossible.
With all the stress one undergoes during his or her shift in the hospital, one certainly would want a just compensation. In the Philippines, working abroad as soon as possible is the typical goal of most nursing graduates, given the low pay of nurses in local hospital. That maybe the reason why most graduates would want to work on hospitals abroad.
But despite the uncertainty of landing a hospital job for fresh graduates, it is still imperative to deliberately pursue the job if you really want it.
A fresh nursing graduate may have to volunteer at a hospital for training and experience. Though part of their education is to serve a minimum amount of time at a hospital, volunteering is still a necessity. Even being a board passer is not a guarantee to immediately land a hospital job, and one does not even have to have a medical degree to work at a hospital
Volunteering can be lucrative but also rewarding as you see the smiles and hear the simple thank you's of your patients. You don't just do your job but you're actually helping them because you're not paid for what you do.
Most importantly, being deliberate and having the heart to serve are but some of the qualities a fresh graduate must possess in order to land a hospital job. It is not easy but it is surely gratifying.
