According to Tyree Lewis, coordinator of the job fair and Director of Quality Management for Chester County’s Department of Mental Health/Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, there are currently more than 200 job openings available through 24 behavioral health employers attending the fair, including Holcomb, Devereux, Resources for Human Development (RHD), Bowling Green Brandywine, St. Luke’s Penn Foundation, Chester County Human Services, and Community Care Behavioral Health.
“Every one of the employers at this job fair has a variety of job openings, including administrative support services within a behavioral health setting,” noted Lewis
“Building a career in the behavioral health arena truly is rewarding because it provides many opportunities to support others in life-changing ways,” adds Lewis. “If you already have behavioral health qualifications and experience, or if you would like to learn more about the real benefits of a career in behavioral health, then I certainly encourage you to attend the job fair. In addition to finding out what jobs are available, you can talk to the organizations represented there, to find out more about the incredible impact that those in human service and behavioral health jobs make on the health and well-being of our community.”
