I've read in a few threads about the tight job market for new grads and seen advice to new grads such as "make sure you beef up your resume" or "make sure your resume is great" etc....aside from formatting/grammar and pre-SRNA experience, just how can a new grad do that? I'm not asking for trade secrets here...just wondering b/c it seems that school will be all consuming, so I don't expect there will be opportunities (like in undergrad) to really distinguish yourself by interning, working part-time, etc...is there really anything that sets new grads apart on paper other than the school he/she attended and GPA? Is it the #/type of cases done in school? Is prior RN experience even considered or will it be as relevant as my beloved first job (Party Hostess at McDonald's )?
