Interlake-Eastern hosts Career Expo at high schools in Selkirk, Beausejour
Staff from Interlake-Eastern RHA and the Manitoba Health Care Providers Network hosted a Career Expo at Lord Selkirk Regional Comprehensive Secondary School on Friday, October 4. This follows a Career Expo that took place at École Edward Schreyer on Wednesday, September 18.

Aiden Kahanovitch, human resources manager with Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority, says the Career Expo gets students interested in health care while they are in high school so they can take steps towards their future career.
 “By letting students know what courses to take and what the path through post-secondary schooling looks like, they’re more likely to succeed and get to the end goal,” says Kahanovitch, “Eventually when these students are ready to look for a position, we hope that they consider Interlake-Eastern RHA as an option close to home and potentially serving the community they are from.”

The Career Expo has staff representatives from nursing, emergency medical services, pharmacy, diagnostic imaging, occupational therapy and physical therapy. In addition, a medical student and a nurse practitioners from the University of Manitoba  will talk to students about their career choices, how they got there and the benefits to working in their field. Students learn about the profession, what studies they need to take while in high school, the faculty they will need to get into and the number of years of schooling until they are ready for work.
