Published on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 (5:29 a.m.)ADVANCE is hosting an online job fair for the Western region of the U.S. on November 7 (12:00pm-5:00pm PT). This special online event will highlight healthcare career opportunities in California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, Montana, Idaho, Hawaii and Alaska.

This career event offers countless opportunities in various healthcare fields, such as nursing, rehabilitation, imaging and radiation oncology, speech-language pathology, respiratory care and sleep medicine, medical laboratory and health information. Students and professionals can explore the online exhibit hall, chat with recruiters, instantly upload their resumes to booths and download valuable information on employers.
