Recruiters want to hire nurses, medical assistants, patient care technicians, dental assistants and other medical professionals. Job seekers should bring copies of their resumes and dress for interviews. Networking opportunities with recruiters are available, and some job seekers can receive offers during the career fair.

More than 100 organizations, businesses and community partners — who represent 15,000 job openings — are recruiting for part-time and full-time positions. Participants include: Walgreens, Aerotek, Parkland Memorial Hospital, Baylor Scott & White, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas, CVS Health, HCA North Texas, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and many others.

Health care is one of the fastest-growing industries nationwide. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the industry is expected to add more jobs than any other group, based on the nation’s aging population and because federal insurance reform should provide more people with health insurance.
