The Number of Open LTC Jobs Dips in the New Year

There are 16,506 open jobs posted by direct employers 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. That is a decrease of nearly 1,500 openings since December. 

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 1,590 direct employers are competing for candidates this month – more than 1,100 fewer than December. The average number of days a job was posted this month increased by one day to 37 days.   

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 300 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. 

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. 

Of course, the LTC Career Center is always free for job seekers and the LTC Career Center  features many of the best positions the long term care profession has to offer. Job seekers are using the site with more than 96,000 searchable resumes on the National Healthcare Career Network this month – an increase of more than 1,000 candidates from December.   Job postings on the AHCA/NCAL Long Term Care Career Center network are averaging nearly 1,300 views in January. 

Join the growing list of high profile employers who use AHCA/NCAL’s premier member resource to find top talent.  Check out the LTC Career Center today and remember to use one of the two promo codes to save on your job postings.
