On June 29th, Worksystems in partnership with the Columbia-Willamette Workforce Collaborative (CWWC) and WorkSource Oregon and Washington hosted a job fair for people interested in pursuing careers in the long term care industry
Over 200 job seekers attended and met with 51 employers who are currently hiring. Attendees also had the chance to speak with people in various occupations including nursing, medication aids, caregivers and administration to gain insight into the challenges and rewards of various professions.
The event also launched the Long Term Care marketing campaign - a core deliverable of CWWC's workforce plan to support the industry. A website has been created to elevate awareness of career opportunities in the industry to support this high growth sector in our region. Visit longtermcarenw.org for more information.
