NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Intellect Resources, a search firm specializing in full-time and contract placements in the healthcare IT industry, is hosting a “casting call” style audition event on November 5th to find 90 New Yorkers who are seeking a new opportunity to be fully trained and gain valuable job experience as healthcare technology trainers. The individuals selected during the audition will be placed on 3 – 6 month assignments at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.
The trainers will be teaching Mount Sinai’s staff – from physicians to administrative clerks – how to use a new electronic health records system that the hospital is implementing from Epic Systems Corporation, the industry leader in electronic health records. The new system is being implemented to comply with a provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which encourages healthcare providers to convert to electronic records in order to reduce cost and increase the efficiency and accuracy of health records management.
“Instead of targeting only those who already have experience training medical and administrative staff on healthcare technology systems, we are collaborating with Mount Sinai to give an opportunity to the many unemployed and under-employed New Yorkers who need a helping hand to transition to a more stable career path, or one that they will enjoy more than their current job,” said Tiffany Crenshaw, president and CEO of Intellect Resources. “That’s why we’re opening our doors to anyone from actors to teachers, retirees and recent college graduates who think they have the innate personality, work ethic and people skills to succeed as a healthcare technology trainer.”
The auditions will be held on Friday, November 5th from 8:00 am – 5:30 p.m. at the Marriott Marquis in New York. To apply for an audition, candidates are encouraged to go to www.intellectresources.com/bigbreak and complete the application, upload their resume and complete a short questionnaire before the application window closes on November 1, 2010.
Approved applicants will receive an e-ticket to the event and further instructions for the audition via email. No walk-ups will be admitted. There is no relocation package or reimbursement for travel/commute expenses for these jobs, so only residents within commuting distance of Mount Sinai in New York are encouraged to apply.
Ideal candidates will have excellent presentation skills, flexible working schedule, English fluency, some college or equivalent professional experience and computer proficiency. Candidates selected from the auditions must successfully complete a paid 4-6 week credentialing course in order to be placed on assignment at Mount Sinai.
The audition is designed to have an element of surprise for the candidates because good trainers need to be adaptable and quick on their feet. It is a mass hiring event that will definitely include an opportunity for finalists to show off their presentation skills and demonstrate what separates them from everyone else, and may also include traditional interviews.
“We’re really hoping to find some great candidates from all walks of life who are interested in getting into the high growth field of healthcare technology,” said Susan Brassell-Knox, Director, Strategic Planning and Project Management Office at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. “The audition process is an exciting way to let candidates be a little more creative than the typical job interview, so we’re looking forward to this unique recruiting experience.”
