Global employment website Monster.com has partnered with the MIT-based COVID-19 Policy Alliance and the Massachusetts Senior Care Association to recruit workers for long-term care positions.
Monster’s From Home to Help senior care initiative highlights 1,200 long-term care jobs throughout Massachusetts that are now available, with many of the openings requiring no prior experience. The website boasts competitive salaries for resident care assistants, certified nursing aides, licensed practical nurses and registered nurses, along with a $1,000 bonus funded by the state.
“Partnering with Monster is a critical step forward in addressing staffing shortages in nursing homes across Massachusetts,” said Tara Gregorio, president of the Massachusetts Senior Care Association, which represents nursing and rehabilitation facilities, assisted living residences, residential care facilities and continuing care retirement communities. “Monster’s expertise in reaching job seekers will help alleviate our short-term staffing needs, as well as develop a pipeline to fill long-term staffing vacancies.”
