SSM Health is holding a career fair and you won't have to worry about finding a parking spot, dressing in your best suit, or even have to leave the house!

The Catholic not-for-profit health system is holding it's first ever virtual career fair, letting job seekers from anywhere in the Heartland, or even the country to connect directly with recruiters and hiring managers online.

Here's how it works: from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, September 7, 2016 Human Relations personnel from SSM Health offices in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Wisconsin will be available to take applications and answer questions online and through instant message.

There will also be virtual "booths" in each of SSM Health's regions, in which participants can search through different categories of jobs like nursing, IT, finance, pharmacy and many others.

"Our virtual career fair was developed so anyone interested in a job at SSM Health could attend regardless of where they live, and find out how to join our exceptional team," says Brenda Alexander, Illinois Region Human Resources Vice President of SSM Health. "The event will bring together job seekers and our top recruiters, hiring leaders, and career experts under one digital umbrella."

People attending the virtual job fair also have the chance to win one of two iPads that will be given away via random drawings.
