Find a great job.
Make a big difference.
While COVID-19 freezes our economy, consider jobs in an industry that needs you now. Senior living communities across the country have fast-tracked their recruitment and onboarding. Hospitality, customer service, healthcare, and restaurant experience are all in high demand.
Whether you’re looking for a short-term job or a long-term career, we’re growing–and we need dedicated, caring people. No experience needed.
As Argentum’s partner for workforce development, OnShift has created an expanded resource toolkit to help senior living organizations recruit and hire employees during COVID-19.
What is senior living?
Senior living is a growing industry with opportunities across the country in assisted living, independent living, memory care, and continuing care. Our residents live in a community setting, where they receive support and care that they need. We believe in choice, independence, dignity, and quality of life for all older adults.
What jobs are there in senior living?
Many people are surprised at the variety of careers in senior living. Caregivers, cooks and dining workers, managers, nurses, customer service workers, housekeepers, and maintenance workers are all in demand. Find all about our Careers in Caring.
What are my options if I’ve been laid off or furloughed from my job?
Senior living communities have expedited their recruitment and prerequisites in response to the impact of the COVID-19 virus. Many communities have created short-term positions and utility roles that can be an excellent fit for workers in hospitality, retail, and other industries that have faced major layoffs.
Is it safe to work in senior living?
Senior living communities have extensive plans in place for emergency situations and they follow rigorous infection control procedures and protocol every day. During this unprecedented time, communities are following federal, state, and local guidance and taking extraordinary steps to minimize risk to residents and staff. These include restricted access, screening, social distancing, and intensive cleaning protocols. Employees receive initial and ongoing training to maintain their safety and the wellbeing of our residents.
Why do I have to give my contact information to search for a job?
This site is far more than a traditional job board, which puts the work on candidates to search through countless jobs that might not be the right fit. We use advanced analytics to match candidates to jobs where they will thrive. To make it work, you will need to have your own account linked to your email address. Those few extra minutes to answer a few questions can unlock just those jobs that you are most likely to thrive in.
It Takes a Partnership
