Amid intensified staffing strain fueled by the latest COVID-19 wave, hospitals and health systems are holding hiring events and making on-the-spot job offers.
Robbinsdale, Minn.-based North Memorial Health, which has more than 400 jobs to fill, held a job fair Aug. 19, according to CBS Minnesota.
Open positions include registered nurses, nursing assistants, imaging techs, pharmacy techs, security and housekeeping. Some positions are eligible for a sign-on bonus, starting at $1000, according to the health system.
“We know over the last year with the pandemic it’s been a struggle. We have a high level of open positions right now,” North Memorial Talent Acquisition Manager Allison Gibbons told CBS Minnesota.
