The Number of Open LTC Jobs Nationwide Tops 43,000 in January

Dave Kyllo

There are 43,531 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 Gartner TalentNeuron statistics.  That represents an increase of more than 10,000 open jobs compared to typical monthly figures from last year. 
   
The Gartner TalentNeuron statistics also show an estimated 2,661,000 potential candidates in the nation’s workforce whose skills likely match the qualifications being sought by long term care employers. Figures show that 2,960 direct employers are competing for candidates this month. The average number of days a job was posted was 38 days in January.      

Finding qualified employees is one of the greatest challenges facing long term care providers and early 2019 statistics prove that the challenge is only growing in the strong economy with a low unemployment rate.  Lead them to your job vacancy through the AHCA/NCAL Long Term Care Career Center. 

The LTC Career Center is designed to help AHCA/NCAL members be competitive in attracting qualified candidates to fill their health care positions.  Job postings receive far greater exposure than local ads and job boards because the LTC Career Center connects to a national network of nearly 300 national and state health care organizations and societies where serious candidates look for health care jobs. Employers are also able to post vacancies as they occur and search resumes on the network.

Rates for posting job vacancies are affordable at $350 for a 30-day job posting.  Employers who utilize the site also receive complimentary additional exposure through rotating new 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 free 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 67,000 searchable resumes on the National Healthcare Career Network this month.  

Join the high profile employers that use AHCA/NCAL’s premier member resource to find top talent.  Check out the LTC Career Center or call Robin at 866-964-2765 x2736 for more information about posting job vacancies on the LTC Career Center and other discounted job listing packages.
