Job Fair for RN’s and CNA’s at Goodwill

We just received an email about this job fair! Sorry for late posting.
On August 14th,  from 10:30 am-12 pm we will host a hiring event onsite with a home healthcare agency called ResCare Homecare. All attendees must meet with our staff before the event to be prescreened. We also will need copies of resumes, and there is an online application to complete. Certifications must be up-to-date, and CPR is required for CNAs and Nurses. If they do have copies of their certifications, test results, and other pertinent documentation they will also need to bring that for the event.
Here are current openings:
·         Certified Nursing Assistant (HC)
·         Direct Care Professional (HC)
·         LPN/LPT/LVN
·         Physical Therapist I
·         RN (Hourly)
The agency will be based out of Oak Park, IL and positions will be located depending on need,  but most in the outlying areas of Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Because of this they will need their own vehicle.
ResCare Homecare has the greatest need for CNAs and Nurses. They will open their new location in Oak Park in late August/Early September. If you know of anyone, who may qualify please have them meet with our staff before next Thursday. The employer has requested that applications be complete prior to the event, and she also needs copies of the resumes prior to Thursday. Enclosed are copies of flyers.
For more information please visit Goodwill or contact them at the North Riverside
Workforce Connection Center 1900 Harlem Avenue  North Riverside, IL 60546

Office: (312) 994-1472
