A major part of MRC’s success is hiring the highly compassionate people who are enthusiastic about working with elders. However, it seems that careers in aging are largely overlooked by graduating seniors who are contemplating their future career. MRC’s Talent Acquisition team seeks to change that by reaching out to high school students, educating them on the rewarding careers within the senior living industry.
“We would like for non-traditional students to know about our communities and what we offer. College is not for everyone, and we offer career paths for a wide variety of skill sets; from Maintenance to Clinical positions, if they are looking for a rewarding career that means more, we want to talk to them,” explains Kelly Tittel, MRC’s Talent Acquisition Director. Teams from across the state have joined Kelly and her team for various job fairs, club meetings, and have even made presentations at assemblies hoping to motivate more students to choose careers in aging services.
