The Wesley Community announces plans for upcoming job fairs, including on-site hiring event on March 6

The Wesley Community – a 37-acre senior living campus with more than 700 residents in Saratoga Springs – today announced plans for multiple upcoming job fairs as part of an accelerated recruitment initiative.

Wesley will host an in-house job fair, the first of four hiring events, on Wednesday, March 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Embury Café on the Wesley campus at 131 Lawrence Street in Saratoga Springs.

Vacancies currently exist for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Home Health Aides (HHAs), Licensed Practical Nurses, Registered Nurses and Food Service staff.

Wesley will participate in three subsequent job fairs as follows:

  • Saratoga Springs Public Library – Thursday, March 28, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., 49 Henry Street, Saratoga Springs;
  • SUNY Adirondack – Monday, April 8, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Northwest Bay Conference Center, 640 Bay Road, Queensbury;
  • Maria College – Wednesday, April 10, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., 700 New Scotland Ave., Albany.


“Staffing shortages continue to plague all facets of the health care industry, including senior communities. As a result, we are actively recruiting for a variety of positions and these job fairs are the perfect way to get our message out there as well as give applicants an opportunity to meet us face-to-face,” said J. Brian Nealon, CEO of The Wesley Community. “We believe that Wesley offers a nurturing and upbeat work environment that is unmatched by other senior communities in the area.”

The health care industry is responsible for as much as 14% of the nation’s overall employment, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Similarly, The Administration on Aging predicts that the demand for long-term health care services will continue to grow in the U.S. in tandem with its aging population.

Wesley is currently offering Certified Nursing Assistant training classes. The first round of sessions drew more than two dozen attendees who are expected to graduate on Monday, May 6. Due to ongoing demand for CNAs, future sessions are planned. The next class begins on Monday, May 20.
