This will be Northwestern College’s second career fair to focus primarily on healthcare-related careers. The first one was offered in November of 2017 and garnered significant interest, especially for students graduating in the middle of the academic year. Northwestern College’s School of Health Sciences and Violet L Schumacher School of Nursing comprise approximately 85% of the College’s student body. As this sector of its population continues to grow, so does the need for good paying jobs within the healthcare industry for its graduates to fill.

For 116 years, Northwestern College has been offering higher education opportunities to students in the Chicagoland area seeking the necessary skills for high-interest careers in the workforce. The opportunity to bring its graduates in contact with employers in need of these skills is imperative; Northwestern College continues to make that connection for its students throughout the year via its Office of Career Development, and now twice a year by bringing employers right to its campus to interview graduating students.
