For many of us, Labor Day marked the beginning of the new school year, or maybe the end of summer. The change in season can feel like a fresh start. While celebrating hard-working Americans on Labor Day, perhaps you considered a new job yourself. You may want to consider a rewarding career in the assisted living industry. There are immeasurable rewards, far beyond monetary compensation only, when working with elderly residents. You will work with compassionate co-workers who care and serve others with respect and dignity. Although the work is hard, your job can give you a sense of purpose as you care for this vulnerable population. Aegis Living may be a great career opportunity for you. We currently operate 28 communities in Washington, California, and Nevada. We are looking for dedicated employees as we develop ten new properties over the next several years. We estimate creating 800 new jobs in the next four years and 300 within the next year.
