Back to the last year of university. I found that we seemed to spend a lot of time waiting. Waiting for the recruitment activities organized by the school department
But be clear, the main question you consider first is what kind of skills you have.
You may have many ideas about what kind of person you want to be. Please don't struggle here. Because as you said, time is limited.

You should first fill in your online resume on the corresponding job search website. Then send your resume.
You may not find a good job at first or for a while. But at the same time, you will find that your resume becomes more and more individual. You should realize that many of us don't know what is the most suitable job. But we can only do and then decide, not just thinking.

Your career will be start soon. Congratulations on entering the next stage of your life

I agree with Molly. There is a nursing shortage right now , so look everywhere online as it should be easy. Check specific hospital websites and apply there , even before you graduate. Alot of times they prefer new nurses as they can train them easier.

I also agree , get your foot in the door somewhere , then look around internally and externally for additional opportunities .

Molly’s Answer

Where to look:
- Get your resume on as many job boards as possible (Indeed, LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, etc.)
- Engage with any and all virtual job fairs
- Engage with any and all career placement resources provided by your University

What to look for:
- Glass Door is an amazing website that provides: Salary, Benefits (paid time off, 401k offering/matching, health/dental/vision insurance), Employee Review information
- Location (are you open to relocating or travel?)

When to look:
- 9-12 months from graduation start getting a feel for entry level jobs you are interested in
- 6 months from graduating - start applying!

The most important thing is to get your foot in the door somewhere to get started. Even if it's not your dream job, know that it is a necessary step to get your closer to that ideal.

RAVI’s Answer

I do not have much background in Nursing. I keep reading that there is a big shortage of nursing staff in financial new circles. Hopefully that should help your situation.

Following steps should help:
1. Prepare a good resume and have it ready.
2. Research and locate all the hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities near you and also wherever you want to work. Book mark their web sites and look for jobs on their web sites. Apply to all the jobs available. Do not wait till the final semester.
3. Look for volunteer opportunities in these facilities. You may or may not get paid. Start volunteering on weekends and evenings and develop relationships with the companies, network with people who can help you secure a job.
4. Research and find out requirements for international Nurses to work in this country and if there are any paperwork needed, get familiar with them and may be even prepare in advance.
5. Locate your seniors or others from your country who might have been gone through the situation and approach them for advise and help.

Best of Luck!
