Students Connect with Top Health Care Employers

by Marketing Services - Cedarville, OH

Cedarville University is committed to connecting students with top employers. The University’s highly regarded career services department sponsors job fairs (called “Career Link” events) that attract hundreds of employers and graduate schools to campus each year. Individual employers are also regularly on campus to meet with students. While students definitely benefit from these job fairs, employers continuously comment that it is the quality of the Cedarville students that keeps them coming back.

For students pursuing careers in health care, Cedarville recently provided the perfect opportunity to meet prospective employers and begin learning about career opportunities. The Health Care Career Link event attracted more than 20 health care organizations to campus.

Health Care Career Link highlighted careers in athletic training, exercise science, and nursing and attracted representatives from area hospitals, universities, and health organizations. Students, who had opportunities for training in advance, were encouraged to come to the fair dressed professionally and with resumes in hand. Some of the organizations taking part in the fair included:

The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton
Good Samaritan Hospital, Dayton, Ohio
Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati
Kettering College of Medical Arts
Madison County Hospital
Mercy Health Partners
Miami Valley Hospital
The Ohio State University
U.S. Army
University of Cincinnati
Upper Valley Medical Center

Employers who attended the fair spoke highly of Cedarville students, commenting on their preparedness and their professionalism. A representative from University Hospital shared, “It is a pleasure to interact with [CU] students. They are well prepared and professional.” Work-Fit said that they “look forward to working more with [CU’s] athletic training and exercise science curriculums.” They were impressed with the good questions asked by students.

Cedarville University’s mission is to “equip students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth.” Through the Health Care Career Link event and other events like it, Cedarville students find open doors to careers that provide a platform to influence this world for Jesus Christ.
