Job Fair for Nursing and Allied Health Positions in Newton, MA

August 20, 2011

I just learned of a job fair that is being held this upcoming Tuesday in Newton, Massachusetts. The basic details are listed above.  Look for the pull out section in Monday’s (August 22nd) Boston Herald for more information. 

Some of the positions to be filled include Registered Nurses, Licensed Nurse Practitioners, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Case Managers, Nurse Educators, and Healthcare Analysts.

The Herald provided a partial list of the companies attending:

Arbour Health System
Eliot Community Human Services
Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates
MEDITECH
Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts
South Bay Mental Health
Tufts Health Plan
U.S. Army Healthcare

Additional Information about Job Fairs and Career Fairs

In the past, while  looking for sites that either gave a directory of job fairs or information about attending a job fair, I noticed that there were some references to career fairs. I checked to see if they were being used interchangeably and discovered that they are somewhat different. Employers attending a job fair are supposed to have specific jobs that they are trying to fill during the fair. A career fair can be more long term. Some may have jobs to fill then and there. Many are probably looking to the future and may have no specific jobs to fill at that time. They are there to explain the career opportunities at their company and collect information on people that look like good prospects for future hires. Colleges and universities would be prime, but not sole, targets for career fairs.

Below is a list of sites that have information on both job and career fairs. I was not surprised to discover that one site listed no job fairs over the summer for Massachusetts and another did. As always, you do not rely on just one source if you can find additional information elsewhere. If you use any of the sites below, let me know how it works out. Click on the highlighted titles to find more information.

Job and Career Fairs

July 1, 2010

A patron attending my last class was hoping for more information on job fairs.  I usually assume that if one person is asking a question, there are a lot more people that can use the information, so I did a little research for the blog.
