Host an Open House for New Career Awareness Campaign

HealthForce Minnesota will soon launch Caring Careers Start Here, a career awareness campaign targeted at aging services. We are encouraging members to host an Open Hearts Open House to expose students and adults to the great careers that await them in your settings.

Caring Careers Start Here is designed to show students and adults that working in senior care is not only financially and emotionally rewarding, but also offers opportunities for scholarships and career advancement. The campaign website will allow students to find work and explore career paths in healthcare and provide employers access to curriculum and tools for event planning, community building and education.

Host an Open House!

Visit the Open Hearts Open House website and download the toolkit where you will find the basic tools you’ll need to host one or more events between now and Jan. 10. If that time frame doesn’t work, please complete a survey on the website by Jan. 10 about hosting a future event. 

If you have existing events or activities that are already drawing in the community this holiday season, we encourage you to “brand” them with the logo files and signage provided in the tool kit. As this campaign goes statewide, consistent messaging is key! Existing events are a great way to kick off this initiative.
