“With the increasing need for qualified health care professionals, this Health Careers Job Fair gives students and employers a great opportunity to connect,” John McGowan, Career Center Coordinator said. “While many employers seem to be laying off their workforce, careers in health care are one of the few areas of growth in these tough economic times.”

In addition to the Health Careers Job Fair, a general Job Fair will be held April 16, 2009 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM on the Batavia Main Campus in the William Stuart Forum.
