Health Care Careers Have a Bright Future

Health Care Career Fair
Before you head to the career fair, be sure to register online and gather all of your application materials. Additionally, the Dallas County Community College District also provides free career planning and job search services if you need resume assistance or want to practice your elevator speech.
What Do Health Care Employers Look For?
At most job fairs, those seeking employment feel like small fish in a big pond — there tend to be more job applicants than job openings. So you move from table to table, doing your best to stand out from the crowd.
At a health care career fair, however, the opposite is true — there are usually more job openings than qualified applicants. You are a big fish in a small pond, and employers will use their best bait to try to lure you into applying. Listen carefully to find out which positions are the best matches for your skills and experience.
