New Tool To Help Providers & Direct Support Staff/Community Attendants With Employment!
HHSC is launching Direct Care Careers Connect to help community attendants and employers connect beginning June 1, 2023.
The online platform will allow community attendants to list work history, skills, certifications, trainings, and other job qualifications. Employers will be able to post job descriptions, job specifications, and other information to help find quality candidates. Employers can also contact job candidates about posted positions.
HHSC does not play a role in the hiring process.
HHSC invites community attendants and employers to use this new online platform at no cost. Alternative terms for community attendants can include: attendant; care attendant; caregiver; direct care staff; direct service worker; direct support; home care attendant; home health aide; patient care assistant; personal care assistant; personal care attendant; special caregiver; care assistant; direct support professional; or direct care staff.
(Host Home/Companion Care Providers would seem to fall under this, but I am unclear at this time. I would contact the email below to ask.)
