Companies Hiring This Month: January

cvsWe've waved goodbye to the first decade of the new millennium, and hopefully we've seen our last of a sour economy. It's a new year and we're ready for a change. Fortunately, many companies feel the same way and they're ready to hire plenty of new talent in 2010.

Health care was one of the few industries to grow in 2009 and this year looks to continue that trend. Ascension Health needs to hire 75 new employees by the end of January for a change initiative being rolled out. Meanwhile, University of Wisconsin Health is looking for medical staff at all levels, including pharmacists, nurses, physicians and technicians.

Education continues to be a thriving sector as more people are returning to school to gain a competitive edge in their job searches. Look no further than Northern Virginia Community College for proof.

"Our needs today are for full-time and part-time faculty," says Shelli W. Jarvis, associate director for employment. "We added the equivalent of a small college in the fall of 2009 and anticipate our enrollment continuing to increase."
