New Website Launched to Help Employers with Recruitment Needs, Job Seekers Find Employment
A free recruitment resource has been developed exclusively for Nebraska. In response to the Legislature’s concern with growing behavioral health workforce challenges in our state, a website was developed specifically to promote behavioral health workforce opportunities in Nebraska. This website was made possible through a collaboration between BHECN (Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska) and the Nebraska Regional Behavioral Health Authorities.
NebraskaBehavioralHealthJobs.com provides a FREE resource targeting employers who want to recruit specifically in the behavioral health field and for job seekers who want to work in this field. Any employer who provides behavioral health services in Nebraska may post unlimited job openings for free. Services are defined as direct or indirect care, including administrative agencies that serve a role in the behavioral health system of care. Because we believe every position in an organization contributes to its overall success, the scope of job postings is meant to include every level in the workforce, from entry-level administrative support to licensed professionals. By creating a customized profile, job seekers may also search jobs and post their resumes for free. Click here for the Q & A fact sheet.
NebraskaBehavioralHealthJobs.com also has a Facebook page: please click here and “like us.” Get your friends and family to do the same. The more people who know about this, the more we can get the word out to educate employers and job seekers alike. Please contact Kim Michael, project coordinator, should you have any questions.
