I didn’t know this was something Bronson Battle Creek did
I didn’t know this career fair partnership with the Battle Creek College Access Network was something Bronson Battle Creek did. When we were asked to do it, I wasn’t prepared that it was going to be this cool. When I was younger, when I thought of healthcare, I thought there were very few things you could do. I thought it was mostly bedside care and there weren’t a lot of specialties like surgery and obstetrics. I didn’t really think about all the careers there were.
It’s nice to have younger people come from the community to see what all is available. I think this is a great opportunity for them to find out it’s not just nursing. There’s so many other things they could be a part of.

The program partners several employers in the community to host more than 700 students at this one-day, hands-on, career exploration experience in a field of their interest. In 2019, Bronson welcomed 11 students and hosted career stations.
