That sucks. 🙁  At least it will get you in the door and talking to someone? Maybe something will open up dayside..

Sorry you are having a hard time. I know in my area it is pretty common that you have to start out in nights/PMs or atleast rotating to get your foot in the door.I would definately still go and hopefully it will be a good match and they would be willing to work with your schedule. Have you thought of maybe finding a per diem psotiion so would would be able to pick when you work, but still get your foot in the door?

I’ve had a few jobs that started off less-than-ideal, and then within weeks or months the job was upgraded to something better. my suggestion: go to the interveiw and ask them if you have a chance to get moved to a day position quickly?  

either way, you should always go to interviews- you never know what might happen, and if anything, they are good practice!

Per diem is when you don’t have a set schedule or a set number of hours.  You work as they need you, filling in shifts here and there.  I worked per diem at a hospital while I was in college.  That way I could work full time during school breaks and go down to part time during the semesters.  Often times I would cover shifts when people called in sick or went on vacation.
