GCC Introduces First-Ever Nursing Career Job Fair

Students, Educators, Employers and Community Members Welcomed
Genesee Community College continues to demonstrate a commitment to student success and community connections on Thursday, November 13, 2008 when more than 25 of the area’s top health care employers and four-year universities will attend the first annual Fall Nursing Job Fair to explore educational and career opportunities.

Health care institutions represented include Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Strong Memorial Hospital, and Kaleida Health. In addition, representatives from educational divisions such as Niagara University’s Department of Nursing and Roberts Wesleyan College will also be in attendance.

Despite the current economic crisis, the nursing field is experiencing rapid growth, which is projected to continue for the next few years. “This event will provide our students and community members with networking and career opportunities, and get people excited about this ever-expanding field of work in an otherwise challenging job market,” said John McGowan, Career Center Coordinator. “We are always excited to see the various successes that come out of this event for both employers and potential employees.”

The event is free, open to the public, and will be held at the Batavia Campus of Genesee Community College in the Forum from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. on November 13. Attendees are encouraged to bring their resumes and come prepared to interview.
