Recruit Top Senior Living Professionals

The Senior Living Career Center serves professionals in the senior living business looking for top talent to fill critical roles in their organization. Unlike commercial job boards where hundreds of unqualified candidates may apply, ALFA's niche job board directly connects qualified industry talent to senior living companies, so those who do apply will be much more likely to match your requirements.

Resume Search

You must have an employer account to search senior living professional resumes. If you post a job on ALFA's Senior Living Career Center, you receive free access to ALFA's Senior Living Career Center Resume Bank (of 500+ senior living resumes) while the job is active. If you post a job to the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN) via the Senior Living Career Center, you receive free access to search the NHCN Resume Bank (140,000+ healthcare resumes) while the job is active.

National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN)

With the new career center comes a strategic relationship with the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN). The NHCN is a proven solution designed to combat the healthcare workforce shortage and provide a meaningful recruitment resource for employers.

By linking to the job boards of  300 healthcare associations, including the American Hospital Association, American Assisted Living Nurses Association, National Center for Assisted Living and American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, the NHCN extends the reach of senior living job postings and connects a broader range of qualified candidates in the healthcare industry with job opportunities. When an employers opts to upgrade their job posting to the NHCN, that position gets placed on all relevant job boards that are a part of the vertical. With an active NHCN job posting, employers can search the NHCN resumes database at no charge. In the past 6 months alone, 63,000+ healthcare job seekers have posted their resumes.
