Del Tech partnering up to host health care virtual job fair
DELAWARE – Delaware Tech is partnering with Delaware Health care Association to host a virtual job fair for health care workers. This job fair will give Delaware Tech students and alumni, an opportunity to explore career and job possibilities.
Officials say Delaware’s health care industry is in dire need of nurses, allied health professionals, medical assistants, patient care technicians, and certified nursing assistants.
This virtual event will provide nursing, medical, and other student health care practitioners with direct access to employers. A recent emergency order announced by Governor Carney on December 1st, allows these students to work in Delaware hospitals during the pandemic. Which officials say is much needed at this time.
Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs at Delaware Tech, Melissa Rakes says, “Right now I know employers are experiencing a lot of difficulty in being able to attract and retain workers because its a scary time to work in health care. So we want to make sure that everyone knows about the need and that they’re able to match their skills to their needs because we need everyone right now.”
The Health care job fair will be held virtually on Wednesday, December 16th from 10 am to 2 pm.
If you are a health care student or alumni and would like to register for this event, you can do so at dtcc.edu/virtual/jobfair.
