Would manager or HR be impressed?

Rating:
(votes: 0)


1 Hi Everyone... this question is not for me but for a fellow nurse that I know. Would a manager or recruiter be impressed if you told them that you quit your current job just for them (during orientation) ... and that they are your top choice?
Lol, I woudn't think so.

I'm not a nurse but I would be careful with such information.. I mean if you have to put in a 2 week notice than I think the fact that you chose this place over another is evident. If you're not giving notice, I think that might reflect badly as a new hire since they may wonder if you'll do the same if another 'offer' becomes available. I wouldn't do it just for the sake of 'impressing' them. JMHO

In all honesty I wouldn't say that you quit just for them. That may make them believe that they will suffer the same fate as soon as you find some place you like better. Saying that they are your first choice as an employer would be a much better thing to say.

Quote from OgopogoLPNI'm confused...your friend is already hired and doing orientation? Then, yes, I guess he/she would have to have quit their old job, so that is not breaking news.Sure, telling a new employer that they were your top choice couldn't hurt. But in this economy, you need them more than they need you. You are a dime a dozen. Getting a job is the hard part. Don't sound arrogant like you did them a favor by working for them.

Comment:
If by orientation you mean interview, NOT a good idea, whether that place is your top choice, or not, it looks and sounds tachy and disrespectful and give the idea that if another "top choice" comes along in a few months you will quit at the drop of a hat for them also. Not the best move in the game book , but it may not completely disqualify you for the position.O and by you and your i mean your friend.

Comment:
Telling the new employer their facility was her top choice is nice, but I don't think she should say she quit for them. That sounds kind of flippant as well as a red flag that she might quit again if something else seems better (which of course anyone might, but a person doesn't need to say it at an interview!).

Comment:
It doesn't look great when you quit DURING orientation. If she really quits and ends up interviewing with hospital B, why would she want to mention that she quit for them? I'd be embarassed to tell an employer that I quit during orientation. I wouldn't even mention it unless they interrogate. I agree with the other posts that it does sound nice that they are her "top choice"

Comment:
Wow. If anyone's keeping a Top Ten list of prospective-job-related decisions, I'd like to nominate this idea.Please tell your friend this is a BAD idea.

OP, seriously? A NM wouldn't give a rat's backside.
