Dartmouth Health will host a Career Expo at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) on Tuesday, May 2, from 3 to 7 pm. With more than 30 exhibitors, the event is an excellent opportunity for high school and college students, parents, educators, job seekers, career changers, and current and future healthcare workers to explore the many careers available in healthcare.

This is no ordinary career fair. It is an event at which people can learn about and explore careers in allied health, nursing, engineering and trades, IT, security, rehabilitation, social work, community health, healthcare operations and administration, as well as paid training programs through Dartmouth Health’s Workforce Readiness Institute (WRI). Dartmouth Health education partners, such as Colby Sawyer College, River Valley Community College, Vermont Tech and New England College, will also be on hand to share information about their programs as well as grant funding available to support education and training.

“We are thrilled to be holding this event in person for the first time since 2018,” said Carolyn Isabelle, Dartmouth Health director of workforce development. “It is a great opportunity for students, job seekers and educators to come and speak with our teams and education partners. There are so many career opportunities in healthcare, and our Career Expo is a wonderful way for people to explore them right here at the medical center.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on demonstrations and speak with clinicians and other Dartmouth Health team members about careers and career advancement pathways in healthcare. Attendees will also be able to speak with hiring managers and recruiters about open positions within the Dartmouth Health system.

The Dartmouth Health Career Expo is hosted by Dartmouth Health’s Workforce Readiness Institute (WRI), a registered career school with the New Hampshire Department of Education. The WRI offers training and career advancement opportunities through comprehensive training and registered apprenticeship programs that offer full-time employment with benefits, as well as experiential learning opportunities for high school and post-secondary students. WRI is currently enrolling for several career training programs, including Ophthalmic Assistant Training Program, Medical Assistant Apprenticeship, Pharmacy Technician Apprenticeship, Phlebotomist Training Program, Surgical Technologist Training Program, LNA Training Program, and others.
