2023 Discover Health Career Expo coming soon
Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority, in partnership with Manitoba Healthcare Providers Network, is hosting a rotating recruitment roadshow in communities across the region to showcase different health-care professions and job opportunities to students and the public.
Julene Sawatzky, human resources lead with Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority, says the 2023 Discover Health Career Expo gets prospective employees interested in a rewarding career in health care.
“The goal of the expos are to give the attendees a better understanding of different health professions and connect them with staff working in the field,” says Sawatzky. “Eventually, when these students and members of the public are ready to look for a position, we hope that they consider Interlake-Eastern RHA as an option close to home where they can potentially serve the community they are from.”
The career expo has staff representatives from nursing, paramedics, pharmacy, home care, long term care, diagnostic imaging, occupational therapy and physical therapy. These professionals will talk to attendees about their career choices, how they got there and the benefits to working in their field.
The events are planned between the months of April and June at venues across the region. In addition to these career expos, Interlake-Eastern RHA staff are also attending other community-hosted career events across the region.
Anyone interested in learning about a career in healthcare can attend an expo. High schools have also been invited so students can learn about different health-care professions, what studies they need to take while in high school, employment opportunities available while in school, the schools that offer education programs and the number of years of schooling until people are ready for work.
Interlake-Eastern RHA staff on site at career expos will be able to accept resumés and assist members of the public with applications.
