LifeSpire of Virginia Hosts Statewide Opportunity Expo

On November 10 – 12, LifeSpire of Virginia’s talent management team hosted its first ever statewide Opportunity Expo with a goal of filling dozens of positions. Careers available included everything from certified nursing assistants and licensed practical nurses to cooks and transportation team members.

Over the course of the two-day talent search, organizers of the event were able to hire 50 new team members—five at The Culpeper and The Glebe, 15 at The Chesapeake and 25 at Lakewood.

Corporate Recruiter Jillian Perez said it was a successful event despite the ongoing pandemic.

“Lots of people came out to the communities, and most of the events were held outside in climate-controlled tents to ensure social distancing,” Perez said. “We used a text check-in system so applicants could wait comfortably in their cars. We were able to make on-the-spot offers and begin pre-employment screening.”

Several positions are still available and Perez said the talent management team would love to continue scheduling interviews. An up-to-date list of careers is searchable online.
