Graduate Returns to Campus to Conduct Interviews
Jan 14, 2014
Amanda Gracie, a graduate of the Louisville Campus who is working as team lead at JenCare Neighborhood Medical Center, recently returned to campus to conduct skills assessments in conjunction with on-site job interviews that were held by JenCare. Amanda, who was first featured in the December 18, 2012 issue of the National News, began her career at JenCare working as a registered medical assistant.
“Amanda quickly moved up from a medical assistant, to now team lead,” said Skye Verndon, director of staffing and development for JenCare. “It is a real testimony of what happens when you come aboard our company. We continue to grow, and we like to promote from within.”
Gontran Moreno Landeros was one of the graduates who impressed Amanda with his skills as he took her blood pressure and other vital signs, and was hired by JenCare a short time later.
Gontran developed an interest in the medical field after participating in a medical careers program in high school and he enrolled at National after graduating. “It was close by my house, and it was affordable. It benefitted me in a good way,” said Gontran, who is a native of Mexico.
Gontran felt that getting the chance to interview with JenCare on campus was a great opportunity for him. Ms. Verdon and Amanda plan to return to the campus on a regular basis to hold additional on-site interviews.
