How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"Job hunting was essentially non-existent. I received multiple offers from the facilites in which I completed my clinical rotations. When graduation came around, these facilites reached out to me."
"I looked in the classifieds. I also checked online websites such as Monster.com"
"It was very easy to find a job upon graduating. I got the first job I applied for at my preferred location. I actually started my job 3 days after graduating."
"I did not job-hunt. Instead, I applied into a BSN program with little difficulty"
"I didn't need to hunt for a job.I was already employed at a healthcare facility as a CNA and was immediately hired as a student nurse after graduation."
"I did my clinical research in a nursing home. I applied for an open position there right after I graduated, and since I had gotten to know them they hired me right away."
