    Jobs in Bucks County are plentiful. Why not take advantage and spring into a new career? 

    Job seekers can get a jumpstart on their new job search at the Bucks County Spring Job Fair on March 29th at Oxford Valley Mall. Those looking for a new career will have an abundance of options from a multitude of local employers attending. 

    Hosted by RecruitmentQueen, a Bucks County-based digital job board, the career fair features a wide array of positions in various industries, including healthcare, customer service, banking, manufacturing, retail, and more. 

    In all, several hundred jobs will be available at the job fair. The following employers have signed up to exhibit so far: Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, Superpac, Inc., TLC Nursing Service, Inc., Pickering Manor, Dow Jones, Regency Management Services, McHales and Age in Place Home Care. More employers will be added leading up to the job fair. 

    Pickering Manor is looking to staff 20 or more positions at its continuing care retirement community in Newtown, including patient care positions such as nurses, CNAs, personal care aides, as well as cooks, housekeepers, and dietary aides. 

    The facility is also recruiting for its 24-bed memory care unit, which is expected to open in April, according to Human Resources Director Ellen Huber. In preparation for the unit’s opening, everyone – including housekeepers and other non-caregivers – are undergoing dementia training with the goal of being the first in the nation to have all staff fully trained in dementia care.

    Pickering Manor offers referral bonuses for employees, paid time off and 401Ks for both full- and part-time employees. Full-time staff also are eligible for health insurance and company-funded life insurance, short- and long-term disability.

    The pandemic has made hiring of licensed staff more challenging, Huber said. 

    “A lot of training programs were shut down,” she said. “Even in tech schools, they couldn’t graduate with their CNA.”

    Offered in a similar format as other career fairs, job seekers will be able to ask questions of Pickering Manor representatives, as well as other employers during the three-hour fair, according to RecruitmentQueen Founder Jennifer Schultz.

    “The benefit to attending the job fair is to seize the opportunity to talk to the recruiters and hiring managers of employers,” Schultz said. “This is extremely helpful versus applying to a position online, where you don’t get a chance to sometimes understand the job opening fully.”

    It’s a good idea for job seekers to come with several copies of their resume in hand to prepare for face-to-face interactions with hiring managers and recruiters. Even though the career fair is held at a shopping mall where dress codes do not apply, professional attire is recommended.

    If you go   

    RecruitmentQueen’s Bucks County Spring Job Fair will be held in the center court of Oxford Valley Mall, 2300 Old Lincoln Highway in Langhorne on March 29th from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
