I didn't see a current forum post for the 2018-2019 application cycle. If there is and I missed it, please let me know!! I am signed up to attend the open house June 23rd from 1000-1200 and was wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting up afterwards to socialize and network. I live in the area so I can set up a space for us at a local venue. Depending on the number of those that RSVP, the venue may change, but it will be in Norfolk where the school is located. I was thinking 1230 or maybe we should shoot for 1300 in case the open house takes longer than planned. Has anyone attended and can give some feedback? I'll post this info on the pre-PA facebook pages and if enough interest is created, I'll make a FB event. Best of luck to you all!! Vicky Instagram handle: thegrayprepa
Hi! So I am planning to apply to EVMS this summer. I am signed up for the MPA Information Session on June 17th, 2017. Is anyone else attending the info session and/or planning to apply for the class of 2021?
This might seem silly, but I'm pretty stressed out and discouraged. I figured there was no harm in asking for advice from those with more experience. I graduated in May, passed PANCE, obtained state licensure and began the job hunt. Yes, I was late to the party, I'm aware. I was painfully naive about how challening the search would be, particularly if I restricted it to one locale. Unfortunately, I've found out the hard way that the "specialty, location, salary; pick two" mantra frequently used on this forum is, at least in some parts of the country, probably more accurately stated as "one". The first thing I did was contact my "dream job", knowing they weren't hiring, but hoping to be contacted about openings in the future after gaining experience elsewhere. I got the generic "no positions currently available, will hold your resume blah blah" and began an aggressive job search with no success so far. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when Apple released iOS8. Since upgrading my iPhone, there have been multiple instances when I received a VM from someone without ever getting a call, and with no evidence of a missed call. So the fact the person left a VM was the only way I knew they contacted me. This happened again today (4pm) when I saw a VM (left at 845am) by an unfamiliar number with no missed call. It was the staffing manager from the "dream job" group, seeing if I'd be interested in a position that opened. I was crushed. I called back, it rang until VM, and I left a brief msg apologizing for being unavailable and requesting another call at any time. Not sure if they left for the day, didn't want to deal with it at 4pm on Friday, or - my biggest fear - had already filled X number of interview slots from however many people they made contact with. It's a rather large group with a high amount of interest from prospective employees. The point of my novella-- I'm trying to decide whether to send an e-mail this weekend and reiterate my desire to speak with them, or if that borders on redundant and annoying.. or just pointless, if it'll likely be seen at the same time as the VM. I know these people have lives, but do you think they receive work e-mail on their phone and would therefore get it sooner and possibly keep me in mind? And, if so, should I explain my phone issue? Thanks guys. :/
