No driving, no traffic and no searching for a parking space … plus an opportunity to win a free iPad. Those are some of the key perks afforded those attending SSM Health's upcoming virtual career fair. Most important, however, the first-time event will enable job seekers, regardless of where they're located, to connect directly in real-time – and on their own time – with SSM Health recruiters and hiring leaders from the Mid-Missouri region, as well as across the organization's four-state system.
Scheduled from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 7, the 12-hour event will feature dozens of SSM Health HR professionals from Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Wisconsin, who will address questions and provide information via instant messaging to job seekers about open positions across the system. Because the virtual career fair will take place completely online, job seekers can join the event from the comfort of their home. Those interested in attending should register in advance at www.ssmhealthcareers.com/virtual.
"Our virtual career fair was developed so anyone interested in a job at SSM Health could attend regardless of where they live, and find out how to join our exceptional team," said Avis Eden, talent acquisition leader for the Mid-Missouri region. "The event will bring together job seekers and our top recruiters, hiring leaders, and career experts under one digital umbrella."
SSM Health's virtual career fair will enable job seekers to learn about specific jobs; interact one-on-one with recruiters; attend breakout sessions with key department hiring leaders (see schedule); and find out about SSM Health benefits and programs.
They'll also be able to visit a variety of virtual "booths" in each of SSM Health's regions. In fact, with just a few swipes on a mobile device or a few clicks on a laptop, job seekers will be able to visit and search for jobs in 14 different digital booths, including nursing, nursing support, IT, finance, accounting allied health, pharmacy, and others. Job seekers will also have the opportunity to join the SSM Health Talent Network and sign up for Job Alerts to stay connected.
In addition, SSM Health is offering sign-on bonuses for certain clinical positions at some of its hospitals. Attendees also will be eligible to win one of two iPads that will be awarded via random drawings.
"We look forward to connecting with hundreds of job seekers on Sept. 7," Eden said. "At SSM Health, we're dedicated to providing exceptional service and the highest-quality care to our patients and customers. We believe that candidates will be inspired by what they learn about our organization and the opportunities available."
