Health Career Center offers job seekers unique chance to meet employers

Job fairs come in many shapes and sizes. The typical job fair is designed to bring together as many employers and job seekers as possible under the same roof. These fairs are appealing to job seekers who are curious about a wide range of industries and want to meet many employers in a short amount of time. 

But what about job seekers who already know which industry they'd like to work in? What if there was a way to have more in-depth conversations with recruiters from the companies hiring in that industry? If that describes you, the Kentucky Health Career Center (KHCC) may have just the job fair experience you're looking for. 

The KHCC is offering a weekly series of smaller, more personalized hiring events called Employer Spotlights that each feature one employer from the local healthcare sector. Representatives from leading companies like Norton Healthcare, Trilogy Health Services, Baptist Health, and Morning Pointe come by once a month to meet job seekers and those looking to make a career change. It's one of the best ways to get a foothold in the growing healthcare field. 

Here's what the recruiters have to say:

The Employer Spotlights are amazing opportunities for us to find talented, eager applicants who want to build their careers in the healthcare field.
— Abra Sickles, Recruiter for Almost Family
We’ve found strong candidates at these Spotlight events, both for our current career opportunities and apprenticeship tracks in healthcare. This is a great way for job seekers and employers to meet and start building lasting relationships.
— Tennille Hicks, Recruiter for Trilogy Health Services
