Event has passed


ROCKPORT — MaineHealth Care at Home‘s Coastal Division is holding a blitz hiring event, Tuesday, April 2, from 2 to 7 p.m., in the Farmstead Event and Conference Center, in Rockport.

The event focuses on expediting the hiring process for health care professionals in order to increase important resources for patients in their homes.

Like a speed networking or speed dating event, hiring managers and human resources representatives plan to interview candidates and make on-the-spot job offers during the event. All job offers will be contingent on satisfactory reference, background checks, and a health screening.

MaineHealth Care at Home hopes to find a variety of healthcare professionals, including registered nurses (including recent nursing graduates), physical therapists, and speech language pathologists for its Coastal Division.

The organization is emphasizing the benefits of working in home health care. Caring for patients in their homes can be a rewarding experience for both patients and healthcare professionals, according to a news release.

“Every time I see a patient, I know that I’m one of the reasons they can be at home,” said Jill Mitchell, a physical therapist and clinical director for MaineHealth Care at Home Coastal Division, in the release. “Making that connection helps them get better quicker.”

Along with one-on-one patient care and job satisfaction, working in home health care also offers employees scheduling flexibility.

“It’s about my kids,” said Registered Nurse Judy Hastings, provider relations representative. “Home health care lets me help my parents with their medical appointments.”

Walk-ins at the hiring blitz are welcome, but applicants are encouraged to register online in advance at https://www.careersatmainehealth.org/campaign/mainehealth-care-at-home-hiring-event/.

Applicants should also bring several copies of their resumes, and computers will be available at the event to expedite online applications.

Light refreshments will be available.
