-A A +A

Brunswick NCWorks Career Center’s inaugural Healthcare Job Fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 12 in partnership with Brunswick Community College at the Virginia Williamson Event Center at Odell Williamson Auditorium in Bolivia.

This unique event features only employers from the health care industry that are offering current and future positions. It is geared to connecting local health care employers to health care job seekers, and connecting individuals with available area educational opportunities.

More than 20 Brunswick County employers from both private and government organizations will be present. Opportunities are available at every level of expertise, from home health aide to registered nurse. A background or history in healthcare is not necessary to apply for many positions. Support personnel are also needed.

This event is created by NCWorks Brunswick Career Center to answer the need of Brunswick County health care employers. These employers are hiring and see a dramatic growth in need for future services. Projected growth in the need for nurses and related positions in this area is in the thousands per year.

The Job Fair includes many extras for attendees, including a Scrubs Fashion Show, guest speaker, professional assistance with resume writing and interviewing skills, raffle drawing and abundant face-to-face employer networking.

Brunswick NCWorks Career Center provides individuals with job-training programs and services that increase skills and help obtain meaningful employment. This includes free access to computers, work search and resume assistance, workshops and access to job fairs to connect with employers.

Participants receive career counseling and access to NCWorks online, the one-stop resource for jobseekers and employers in NC. All services are at no cost to jobseekers.
