INDIANAPOLIS, IND — December 2, 2021 — The Indiana Health Care Association/Indiana Center for Assisted Living (IHCA/INCAL), in partnership with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD), is hosting a virtual job fair featuring four long-term care providers that are hiring statewide.

Long-term care providers American Senior Communities, CarDon & Associates, Gardant Management Solutions and TLC Management will be participating in the job fair that is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Dec. 14 from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. EST.

Human resources professionals from each company will discuss the qualifications needed, pay and benefits, and how to apply for current job openings. They are actively hiring administrators, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, personal care attendants, certified nursing assistants, dietary managers, bus drivers, culinary staff and more.

“The long-term care industry offers rewarding careers with tremendous growth potential for dedicated health care workers who want to make a difference in the lives of Hoosier seniors. Our providers have numerous vacant positions that they are looking to fill across the state, offering great starting wages and competitive benefit packages,” said IHCA/INCAL President Zach Cattell.

“I value our partnership with the state and appreciate Commissioner Payne and DWD for hosting this virtual job fair with us on Dec. 14, so we can hire more Hoosiers in the industry.”

“Long-term care is a critical industry for the state of Indiana, and fully staffing these facilities is of utmost importance to the state’s well-being,” said DWD Commissioner Fred Payne. “We are pleased to partner with the IHCA/INCAL and four of its member providers to announce these important opportunities to potential jobseekers.”

Every day, more than two million Americans are cared for in long-term care facilities nationwide. This population is expected to grow as more baby boomers need long-term care services in the decades to come.

Accordingly, the numbers of high-demand, high-wage job opportunities in the health care sector are expected to follow this growth in Indiana, with thousands of health care jobs currently posted across the state. Wages in the long-term care sector have grown approximately 20 percent in recent years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

To register for the virtual job fair, individuals should visit: https://www.ihca.org/events/long-term-care-providers-virtual-job-fair.

Individuals who are interested in the virtual job fair but are not able to attend should still register, as all registrants will receive a link to the recording of the fair.
