Dave Kyllo

There are 20,492 open jobs posted by direct employers this month in the nursing care facility (including SNFs), assisted living, and continuing care retirement community (CCRC) sectors this month according to the latest CEB TalentNeuron statistics.  The number of open jobs posted nationwide by direct employers decreased slightly since July.

The CEB TalentNeuron statistics also show an estimated 2,101,000 potential candidates in the nation’s workforce whose skills likely match the qualifications being sought by long term care employers Figures show that 2,065 direct employers are competing for candidates in July – an increase of slightly more than 100 employers.  The average number of days a job was posted this month held steady at 37.  

Finding qualified employees is one of the greatest challenges facing long term care providers.  The AHCA/NCAL Long Term Care Career Center is designed to help members be competitive in attracting qualified candidates to fill their health care job vacancies.  The LTC Career Center is also fully integrated with Google’s new job search feature “Google for Jobs” creating even greater exposure for job postings.

Rates for posting job vacancies are affordable and give prospective employers far greater exposure than local ads and job boards by connecting to a network of more than 330 national and state health care organizations and societies.   Employers are also able to post vacancies as they occur and search resumes on the network.

There are two great ways for skilled nursing center and assisted living employers to save on their job postings on the Long Term Care Career Center.  First-time job posters can receive 25% off their first posting by entering promo code New25off when they check out.  Employers with multiple positions to fill can purchase three job postings at one time and receive a 20% discount on the three postings by entering promo code Bundle20 at check out.

Of course, the LTC Career Center is always free for job seekers.  And, job seekers are using the site with more than 90,000 searchable resumes on the National Healthcare Career Network this month.   Job postings on the AHCA/NCAL Long Term Care Career Center network are averaging more than 1,500 views in August.

Employers who utilize the site also receive outstanding exposure through rotating job listings on AHCA’s home page – the web site where long term care professionals go for news and information.  In addition, employers who post vacancies through the center receive bonus rotating listings on the Long Term Care Career Center home page.
