Next Monday marks the beginning of Careers in Aging Week. According to the Association for Gerontology in Higher Education, this week is “intended to bring greater awareness and visibility to the wide-ranging career opportunities in aging and aging research. Universities and colleges across the world participate by sponsoring events at their schools or in their communities.”
CALA members will be participating in one such event Wednesday, April 10th at San Francisco State University. The Careers in Assisted Living Forum, a panel of CALA members, will introduce students to the growing field of Assisted Living. The panel will consist of Tom Berry with Sunrise Senior Living, Alison Christensen with Vintage Senior Living, and Sylvia Chu with Aegis Senior Communities. They will share advice, resources, and strategies for a successful career path, along with information on job openings at area communities.
Are you an SFSU student interested in attending the forum? Join us at 2pm on the 10th in the J Paul Leonard Library, second floor, LIB 244. If you’re an employee of an Assisted Living community, tell us: what’s the best thing about your job?
