Apicha CHC is Hiring!

Although Apicha CHC will not be attending the 2016 LGBT Career Fair, we are currently hiring for various positions at our NYC Medical Clinic. As we grow, we are seeking to fill multiple healthcare jobs with hard working, professionally-minded, and socially conscious individuals who already live by our core values.

Apicha Community Health Center is an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, creed, religion, national origin, gender, disability, marital status, citizenship status, affection or sexual orientation.

As you can see, there are a lot of amazing companies that will be attending this event, all looking for talented LGBT individuals to join their team. Next, we've provided some basic tips on how to prepare for a career fair to help showcase yourself in the best way possible.

How to Prepare

  • Update and polish your resume (bring many copies) to submit to employers.
  • Come prepared: Before the event, observe the participating employers that we listed above to highlight/select particular companies that you are interested in or that match your experience.
  • Dress appropriately:  Dressing for career fairs can be tricky. Just be sure your attire presents yourself in a professional way.
  • Practice makes perfect: Simply winging your elevator pitch won't cut it. Practice what you want to say to potential employers with a friend or significant other. This will make the real situation much less intense.
  • Don't ramble: Short, sweet and to the point will get the job done.
  • Be confident: Above all else, be confident! But don't be cocky. There is a fine line between the two.  You got this!
