I am dipping my toes into the job scene. I applied for a job under the impression that it was local but it was in fact in Auckland which is the other end of the island.
I made it through two online screenings and a phone interview. I am on the shortlist. Sadly I will need to withdraw because the living costs of relocating are prohibitive.
It was a job that married nicely with my mental health training.except the people were in financial crisis, rather than a health one.
The whole process gave me a boost of confidence and an understanding that nursing is not my only career pathway. I feel more steady in applying for other jobs and finding the one for me.
I did not expect the process to be positive but it was.
