In determining who would be this weeks employer of the Week (most number of needs or severity of needs) we turned to the healthcare arena. With healthcare being the largest section in this week’s Employment Guide we felt it was not so much a single company with tremendous needs in the Pittsburgh area but the industry in general! Most of the positions revolve around nursing. It’s well known that the Pittsburgh metro has one of the oldest populations in the country so it makes sense that we also have one of the highest concentrations of nursing homes per capita. This has created a tremendous need for nurses. Allied healthcare positions in high demand include certified nurse assistants, home health aides, dietary aides and activity assistants. Some of the facilities are offering free training programs for non-nursing positions. Pick up this weeks issue of the Employment Guide to find out more.
