The health care industry is one of the fastest growing job sectors in Southern Nevada and offers qualified job seekers the ability to have a well paying, sustainable career.
That’s why Workforce Connections’ One-Stop Career Center held its first Health Care Symposium and Hiring Event on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at the One-Stop Career Center, located at 6330 W. Charleston Blvd. (at Torrey Pines), Suite 150, Las Vegas, NV 89146.
Job seekers were able to register online at www.NVCareerCenter.org or on-site starting at 9 a.m. All job seekers interested in participating had to be on-site and registered by 10 a.m., when the symposium began. Job seekers were also encouraged to bring several copies of a current resume.
One-Stop Career Center’s Health Care Symposium and Hiring Event is a multi-layered, coordinated event where job seekers were able to meet dozens of health care professionals who were on hand to answer questions, offer advice and steer them to a successful career.
Training providers offered valuable information during short seminars on career outlook, salary information, as well as opportunities for no-cost career training. Job seekers also could speak with those professionals one-on-one.
“Our mission at One-Stop Career Center is to connect employers to a ready workforce,” said Ardell Galbreth, Workforce Connections executive director. “The opportunity for qualified job seekers in the health care industry is outstanding in Southern Nevada. In cooperation with our nonprofit and education partners, One-Stop will help train job seekers to provide a ready and capable workforce to fill the current employment gap.”
