Caring Gene® Career Fair - Reinforce Your Long Term Care Workforce

Lisa Volk in Clinical & Quality

We are pleased to announce the Iroquois Healthcare Association Workforce Investment Organization (IHA WIO) will be hosting its first ever Caring Gene® Career Fair. This Caring Industry Virtual Recruitment and Training Expo will include a series of virtual events across New York State, designed to connect your long term care organization to qualified candidates who have the Caring Gene® - that innate desire to care for others. 

Our virtual format, powered by Brazen, provides an easy, effective way to reach your target audience and feature employment and training opportunities within your organization. This is a unique opportunity to chat with prospective employees safely, all from the comfort of your home or office. Best of all, there is NO cost to you! 

We’ve set up these events so YOU control the experience. Demonstrate your organization’s value and share important company information to attract the best candidates by creating a "virtual booth". By participating, you will also receive access to attendee information, allowing you to continue the conversation long after the event is over. 

Below, please find the event schedule: 

  • Long Island - Tuesday, February 9, 10:30am - 1:30pm 
  • Albany/Plattsburgh/Glens Falls - Wednesday, February 17, 8:30am - 11:30am 
  • New York City - Thursday, February 25, 3:00 pm - 6:00pm 
  • Rochester - Monday, March 1, 10:30am - 1:30pm

  • Hudson Valley/Poughkeepsie/White Plains - Thursday, March 11, 8:30am - 11:30am 
  • Buffalo - Monday, March 15, 11:30am - 1:30pm 

*Note, if you are a provider operating in more than one region of the state, you may register for more than one event. There are a limited number of slots available on a first come, first serve basis. 


After registering, you will be contacted by the team at IHA WIO to streamline the booth set-up process - complete with your logo, images, videos and other information necessary to make your organization stand out. We will provide training and support – from start to finish – along with best practices and resource guides to ensure your success. 

As a reminder, this initiative is offered to all long term care organizations across New York State at NO COST. For more information, download our event flyer or contact us at
