Video promoting “Better Skills Better Jobs” posted online

A video promoting the Better Skills Better Jobs project, a grant-funded program to provide patient care technician mentoring, support and opportunities for advancement, was posted online this week.

The video was produced by the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, who visited the DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation offices in August to film interviews with Sally Williams, the director of the DFWHC Foundation Workforce Center. The video highlights the patient care technician job efforts with United Way Dallas and the National Fund for Workforce Solutions.

“This grant is the first step towards creating opportunities for high-quality jobs to residents in North Texas,” said Williams. “There is a workforce shortage for hospitals across the U.S. Hospitals participating in this grant are attempting to recruit from a large pool of residents to provide education and development. This video is a great way to promote the program and to spread the word.”

Hospital positions to be promoted include registered nurses, surgical technicians, respiratory therapists, pharmacy technicians and radiologic technologists.
