Owensboro, KY (07/19/2022) — Owensboro Community and Technical College's (OCTC) Workforce Solutions division has partnered with Owensboro Health Regional Hospital (OHRH) to host a career fair for prospective new hires interested in a phlebotomy career on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, offering identical sessions at 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. so interested students may attend the session that best suits their schedule.
OHRH Recruiters will be on hand to share information about employment and the fast-track training partnership with OCTC, where hired applicants can earn wages while training to become certified phlebotomists. Phlebotomists are people trained to draw blood from a patient for clinical or medical testing, transfusions, donations, or research.
The Phlebotomy Career Fair will be held in conference room 8, at OCTC's Downtown Campus located at 1501 Frederica Street, Owensboro. Applicants hired for this Phlebotomy Work & Learn program will train on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-7 p.m. for a ten-week period. Regular work hours will be based on the employer's schedule. Tuition and other course costs may be paid by a healthcare facility.
Cindy Fiorella, Vice President of Workforce Solutions added, "This is a proven opportunity and we are grateful to our partners to be able to offer it again. Students can not only start a career with one of the top employers in our area but also get their training completely paid for."
The event is open to the public and will provide assistance with the employment application process. Initial interviews will also be conducted.
Reservations can be made by calling 270-686-4410 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
