RHINELANDER - Starting a career in the medical field can be tough. That's why some Northwoods organizations are working together to promote job opportunities.
On Saturday, Rennes Health and Rehab in Rhinelander hosted a job fair open house.
Administrator Kelsy Bontz says it is important applicants learn more about openings right here in our community.
"We like to partner with the local high schools and the technical college and make sure that people that are in schooling or in training know that we are definitely a place that they can come and continue their skills," said Bontz.
Some CNAs or certified nursing assistants working at Rennes got started in the field thanks to grants.
Tessa Richter received a grant through Nicolet College, which made it easier for her to get stated in a nursing program.
"I wasn't sure if this was what I wanted to do. It was something that I had always been interested in, but never really did obviously. So, having this opportunity given to me was a chance to try it out, see if I liked it and not feel like I lost anything if it didn't work out for me," said Richter.
Rennes Health and Rehab has openings that include nurses, CNAs, and housekeeping positions.
