Health Occupations Job Fair March 9

Feb. 26, 2016

Nicolet College will hold a Health Occupations Job Fair Wednesday, March 9, to give prospective employees the chance to meet numerous health care employers with facilities throughout the Northwoods.

Nursing“Across the board there’s strong demand in the health occupations for individuals with the right skills and training,” said Nicolet Dean of Health Occupations Lenore Blemke. “What’s beneficial about this job fair is that people can meet with multiple health care providers in one location and employers get a chance to meet with a number of prospective employees. This gives both sides the chance to see who is the best fit for any given job and organization.”

Blemke noted that health occupations graduates have an excellent job placement rate. Nursing graduates in the class of 2014, for example, reported a 100 percent placement rate within six months of graduation.

The Job Fair will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Transfer Center on the Nicolet Campus one mile south of Rhinelander just off of Hwy. G.

In addition, a Health Occupations Panel Discussion will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Learning Resources Center where professionals in the field will discuss what it is like working in health care.

Representatives from four-year colleges and universities will also be on hand at the Job Fair to talk with individuals interested in earning a bachelor’s degree in the health occupations.
