LARGO, Md. — Prince George’s
Community College will be hosting its third annual Nursing Assistant Job Fair
on Saturday, July 8, 2017 from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. at the Center for Health Studies on the Largo campus. All nursing assistants are invited to attend
and inquire about new job opportunities and attend free caregiver workshops.
Some of this year’s workshops include: 1) Dementia: Understanding and Assisting
Older Adults; 2) Caregiver: Activities, Tools and Resources to Engage Older
Adults; and 3) How to Get Employed.
In addition, several employers from hospitals, nursing
homes, assisted living and home health services will be on hand to discuss job
opportunities at their respective facilities.
Nursing assistants who attended the previous years’ job fairs; were
interviewed on the spot and in some instances walked away with jobs from
employers who attended the job fair.
“The college is committed to ensuring that our students
succeed and this job fair is just one of the ways we assist them in realizing
their dreams,” said Veronica J. Hammonds, program coordinator, Nursing
Assistant programs. “Job fairs such as this one provide students
with the chance to meet potential employers face to face and even walk away a
job. But, more than that it also allows students to see what their lives could be
like in their chosen profession.”
