The 2nd Annual
HealthCare Career EXPO & Hiring Event
October 10th, 2019 @ MSSU
The 2nd Annual HCE was held October 10th, 2019, as Mercy, Freeman Health System, Missouri Job Centers, Franklin Technology Center, Carthage Technical Center, The Workforce Investment Board of Southwest Missouri and others will be hosted the region’s LARGEST Healthcare Career EXPO at MSSU’s Leggett & Platt Athletic Center.
There were three (3) morning sessions, that featured exhibits and HANDS-ON demonstrations from local employers & educators. The Healthcare Career EXPO was followed immediately by a hiring and resource event that connected interested students & the general public (last session only) with hiring employers in the industry.
SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS: First Time EVER two (2) scholarships to MSSU were awarded to area students!!!
This event was perfect for students already interested in the healthcare industry, but also students that haven’t made up their mind. They had opportunities to see something at this event that could help shape the rest of their lives! Thank you for giving as many students as possible, the opportunity to experience the region’s PREMIERE Healthcare Career EXPO!! OVER 800+ students attended from 17 area schools!!
