Cambridge Institute of Allied Health and Technology’s Career Services Leaders at its Altamonte Springs (Orlando), Florida campus held a major Employer Job Fair on Friday, March 3rd for its current students and graduates. What a turnout and experience for the students and employers. It was a great success! Cambridge’s Director of Career Services was quoted as saying, “this is something that we have wanted to do for some time.” It took a great deal of planning and organization by our team.
There were over 20 Top Employers that attended the action-filled event, including the following employer partners that were in attendance: Florida Hospital, the United States Army, Lake Bennett Health & Rehab, Academy Physicians, ORMC, Neuro Restorative, Village on the Green, One Blood, Westminster Towers, Caring Home Care, Centracare, Wellness Advocate, Caring First, Children’s’ First, Guardian Care Nursing & Rehab, Serendipity Loving Care, CSI Caregivers, PSA Health Care, and Mary Kay.
We had standing room only with a full house and received excellent feedback from both the employers and the graduates. Several private interviews were held that day and several job offers were made on the spot! We also had some great networking for our new programs, which includes the Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Radiologic Technology programs for potential affiliation agreements.
Below are just a few of the feedback received from some of the employers:

Our purpose and mission of Cambridge Institute of Allied Health and Technology is not only to give our students the best education possible, but also the opportunity to grow and develop relationships with the community and give the best opportunities for future development and growth of our campus and develop a positive relationship in the area as the school of choice.
