I understand why you might feel discouraged after searching for an open position at all those facilities and not finding one. Unemployment is high in all areas due to the difficult economic times that we are all experiencing right now. As a result, employers have many applicants for open positions and can afford to demand previous work experience. I want to encourage you to keep trying to find a CNA job, and to use all the possible resources to locate one in your area. Local newspapers and online job search engines can be a good start. Some of the online listings I looked at did not require experience, but only certification as a CNA. My advice is to keep checking daily, as new jobs are being posted. Don't give up!
