Fourteen LifeWorks grads are embarking on career-path jobs at AdventHealth Orlando this summer! The healthcare leader has partnered with JP to hire up to 75 LifeWorks grads in 2022 as patient care technicians (PCTs). The full-time job starts at $15 an hour, includes benefits and is a first step on the nursing career path.
JP Graduate Services Manager Donna Kalala says, “This job puts our participants on a career path in the medical field where they can make a huge impact in the AdventHealth community. The PCT pathway also gives our participants stability in their careers — and that stability carries over to their families and in generations to come.”
As part of the recruitment process, JP hosted an all-day basic life-support training class for participants applying for the job (see photo).
AdventHealth’s Central Florida division is a longtime JP partner. JP President Marc Stanakis says, “The staffing shortage in healthcare has created an incredible opportunity for us to reach deeply into our community and upskill the men and women we serve for a career path that will provide economic mobility for years to come. And who better to do that with than our missionally aligned partner AdventHealth?”
