Sinclair Community College is partnering with the Dayton Metro Library for the “Healthcare Hiring and Career Exploration Event” on Tuesday, August 2 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Downtown Dayton Library, 215 East Third Street, Dayton, Ohio. The free event is open to the public.
Area employers as well as Sinclair faculty, advisors, and staff will be on hand to help adults of all ages explore in-demand, rewarding careers and learn how to get on a solid path toward achieving their goals. Attendees will have the opportunity to work on resumes, talk to employers, and potentially have an interview on the spot. In addition, experts will talk to participants about what it is like to work in healthcare fields. Jobseekers who have already prepared resumes are encouraged to bring multiple copies to the event.
The “Healthcare Hiring and Exploration Event” is being held in partnership with Ohio to Work, an initiative funded by JobsOhio in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic to connect employers with the skilled workers they need to help Ohio’s job seekers find meaningful employment. Sinclair is the only community college in Ohio selected to lead the Ohio to Work initiative which will partner with businesses and social service agencies to provide training and support to thousands of job seekers.
“We know hospitals and other healthcare providers are struggling to find enough employees in both clinical and nonclinical roles from patient-facing to back-office positions. The Dayton region is exploding with good-paying jobs that are going unfilled because job seekers either don’t know about them or don’t have the right skill set. Many jobs only require a certificate that can be earned in a few months to a year and as individuals begin working, they can progress to more education and begin to earn more,” said Dr. Kathleen Cleary, Senior Vice President Strategic Programs, Sinclair Community College. The Healthcare Hiring and Exploration Event” is a tremendous opportunity for attendees to learn about in-demand career fields and make connections with employers.”
