Hard work was rewarded by allowing me to open a branch in the Dallas / Fort Worth area.
Pros: learned valuable marketing and communication skills.
Cons: none - i was very satisfied for my first job out of college.
American Nursing was my first job out of college. I worked the evening shift as a staffing coordinator. I was able to establish firm relationships with hospital nursing supervisors in charge of staffing. During my shift, I became the go to person for getting a nurse placed in a responsive manner. My efforts were recognized and I was asked to open an office in the Dallas / Fort Worth area to service that specific area, instead of being routed through New Orleans. I enjoyed my time at American Nursing and learned quickly how to handle cold calling marketing for needs, and dealing with the various personalities over the phone in that scenerio. Being on the phone allowed me to develop a strategy for dealing with hard to with callers, and how to keep the clients satisfied. My time at American although was brief, allowed me to hone my telephone skills which I was able to utilize when I went to my next job at Fidelity Investments, and all the jobs henceforth.
