Time to move on....?
« on: May 27, 2008, 05:37:25 PM »
I've been at this current job for a little over a year but I have to admit, I just haven't been happy lately. I've been using the computer at work to apply over the internet and I just got a call from a hospital for pre-registration opening. I had previously asked for this Friday off (Sex and the City opens - didn't tell my supervisor that) and now I'm scheduled for an interview this Friday!! Could this be a sign, I think it's a sign.  I'm very nervous. What if they want to talk to my supervisor - she's not even aware that I've been applying for jobs. Hmmmm, maybe I'll wait to see how the interview goes on Friday before I say anything to my supervisor BUT the person who called, called on the company phone which I just happen to be carrying today so maybe the hospital people did want to speak to my supervisor. Holy crap....I'm excited and nervous at the same time  - I could tell, I'm blabbering....

One step at a time and then another. Have the interview. See if you even want the job. You'll deal with your supervisor knowing IF it even comes to that. AND enjoy the movie.

Good luck.

Why don't you tell your Supervisor, you have found a possible opportunity, have applied and have an interview.  Your Supervisor is going to have to find a replacement for your position if, a job offer is made.  The Interviewer is also going to want to discuss your work habits, absenteeism, tardiness which is all legal and expected so, why not tell your Supervisor and empower that person to assist you in placement with the new employer?   ;D  Have the best day

If you get a job in a hospital it is great work experience that you can take to a lot of places...that's what my boss told me when she was interviewing me 9 years ago.  Turns out that entry-level position I accepted was the best career move I could have made given my circumstances, and I can proudly say I am a healthcare compliance officer for a respected hospital. Pre-reg can open the door to higher positions in the same department, Admissions, even Revenue Integrity or Coding, if you were willing to go to school in your spare time. Or you can just do like me and make chocolate baskets for the cafeteria workers.

If you want more specifics about why I like working in this environment, send me a pm, but I will say here that if they are a large facility with a staffed HR department the are used to NOT being able to reach a supervisor, but you need to have reliable and reachable references. I worked for a very small company with the owner as my direct super and I knew if he got a call about my work history I'd be hitting the pavement anyway. If there's a lot of promotion and turnover where you work now, it might not be a big deal.

Good Luck!
