Internet service connects candidates with jobs

Job seekers can now confidentially market their qualifications over the Internet to health care employers through the new Connection to Health Careers Candidate Registry. A free service, the Candidate Registry can be accessed at http://www.hic.org/jobs.

The registry focuses exclusively on health care opportunities. It features a Personal Profile Service that enables job seekers to build a detailed electronic resume of their skills, qualifications, and employment history.

This information is then deposited in the Connection to Health Careers database, which health care employers search to find specific candidate characteristics that match the requirements of their job openings. Job seekers are contacted via e-mail for interviews or additional information. Individuals who want to participate in the Candidate Registry, but do not currently have an e-mail address, are directed to a free e-mail service.

Connection to Health Careers is a service of the Healthcare Information Corporation, a subsidiary of the Hospital Council of Western Pennsylvania in Pittsburgh.
