My Place CT has createdCaringCareers.org, the State of Connecticut’s resource for careers that help support individuals to live their best lives with optimal health, wellbeing and independence in the community. CaringCareers.org connects job seekers to employment tips and information specifically for the community health and home care fields.
These jobs, sometimes referred to as direct care jobs, cover a wide range of positions — from no experience to positions that require training, certifications and, in some cases, a college education. Community health and home care jobs may allow you to create a flexible work schedule, engage in meaningful work and achieve your career goals.
The skills developed, certifications acquired and technological expertise gained through performing these various positions can open doors to future opportunities if that is what you seek.
My Place CT is also collaborating with the CT Department of Labor's CTHires.com, a trusted employment resource. People in need of a caregiver can create and publish job posts online. Caregivers can use the website to read, compare and apply for positions based on the responsibilities, requirements and level of care.
