Providence St. Joseph Health

Hello,

My name is Madalyn Gordon and I work in Talent Acquisition at Providence St. Joseph Health.

We are in the midst of some strange and uncertain times, and we know that this must be affecting your students quite a bit. As many rely on service-related industries to work through college, we hate to see any folks struggling to make ends meet.

I was wondering if it would be possible to send an email to your current nursing/healthcare students about our job openings at Providence, Swedish, and Kadlec throughout Washington state. We want to make sure that they know that while many industries have frozen hiring due to economic instability – we are still hiring, and in need now more than ever. This is an incredible chance for nursing students to get hands-on experience, make a big difference in their communities, and literally save lives – especially while other learning opportunities have become remote and hands-off during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hiring for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and Nurse Technicians, which many nursing students will be qualified for.

Please let me know if we could get access to a listserv of current nursing students, or if you could pass along an email we send to you, to get the information to your students.

Best,

Madalyn

Bellingham Cold Storage

We are living during very challenging times indeed!
Bellingham Cold Storage has been identified by President Trump as a “critical infrastructure industry” along with law enforcement and health care providers. Our charge is to continue to provide wholesome food supplies into the cold chain such that the grocery stores remain adequately stocked so that our citizens can maintain ample and safe nourishment.
This is a challenge that we are meeting every day. It comes with a tremendously more expensive cost of doing business. We remain hopeful that this pandemic will begin to subside and that the bell curve for CV-19 begins to bend downward in the coming weeks. This uncertainty as you know full well is difficult to plan for, however we remain committed to our mission to keep the nation’s shelves stocked as best we can.
Currently, we are attempting to keep nearly 200 families in jobs, medical coverage all the while expending at tremendous additional cost to heighten our workplace sanitation, personal hygiene and overall food safety for our valued employees, our customers, the consumers, truckers, regulatory agents and vendors that frequent our operations multiple times each day.
Because we are stretched to the limit already and because our primary concern is with the nearly 200 families that we directly support, I am offering an alternative to a hand-out. I am offering an opportunity for a hand-up and the potential for employment for those WCC students that are most impacted, who are capable/willing to work and who are able to complete some very basic requirements.
I’ve attached the BCS Job Fair flyer which as you can see is open to anyone over the age of 18 years. We will begin hiring during the April 24th and 25th job fair however we may have openings earlier depending on how soon the seasonal harvest of local agricultural crops and Alaskan/Washington seafood harvests come in. I would suggest that any interested student continue to check regularly at http://www.bellcold.com/careers for openings as they occur. You may also have them contact our HR Manager, Barbara Jenks (cced here).
We are hopeful that the students of WCC will be able to find employment and or support from their families/parents to sustain themselves while the schools are closed. I expect that several “critical infrastructure industries” will be hiring this spring to meet the president’s request to keep safe, wholesome food flowing to the people of this community and great nation. You might also suggest that students check with several of our customers who are operate berry, seafood and other food processing companies. If you would like a list of companies and their contact information, I will be happy to provide that for you. You might also have them check with grocery stores, Fred Meyer, Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Cash & Carry, WinCo Foods, Walmart, Costco, etc.… those companies are also mandated to continue to keep the food supply flowing. Likewise, trucking companies may need additional drivers to facilitate the transport of goods to market.
I wish I had a huge bucket of extra $$ that we could donate to support your efforts for the challenged WCC students, however during this challenging time the best I can do is offer an opportunity for the students to help themselves if they are interested and can meet some very basic requirements.
Warmest Regards,
Doug
