OWENSBORO, Ky. — Owensboro Community and Technical College’s Workforce Solutions division has partnered with a Owensboro Health Regional Hospital to host a career fair for prospective new hires interested in a phlebotomy career at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021, offering two identical sessions.

OHRH Recruiters will be on hand to share information about employment and the healthcare facilities fast track training partnership with OCTC, where hired applicants can earn wages while training to become certified phlebotomists. Phlebotomists are people trained to draw blood from a patient for clinical or medical testing, transfusions, donations, or research.

The Phlebotomy Career Fair will be held in conference room 8, at OCTC’s Downtown Campus located at 1501 Frederica Street, Owensboro. Applicants hired for this Phlebotomy Work & Learn program will train from 4-7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays for a ten-week period. Regular work hours will be based on the employer’s schedule. Tuition and other course costs may be paid by the healthcare facility.

“This is a proven opportunity and we are grateful to our partners to be able to offer it again. Students can not only start a career with one of the top employers in our area, but also get their training completely paid for,” said Cindy Fiorella, Vice President of Workforce Solutions.

The event is open to the public and will provide assistance with the employment application process. Initial interviews will also be conducted.

Interested individuals may choose to attend the 9 a.m. or the 2 p.m. session. The multiple offerings of the two-hour sessions are structured to allow for physical distancing and cleaning between sessions.

Masks are required. We ask that you do not attend if you are exhibiting COVID symptoms.
