MiraVista Behavioral Health Center is offering virtual hiring interviews for nurses from noon to 2 p.m. in September and October.
The psychiatric hospital for adults and adolescents has been expanding services and sees the virtual interviews that begin Sept. 12 through Oct. 24, as a “here-to-stay tool vital for recruitment.”
“We are looking to hire registered nurses, including nurse managers and nursing house supervisors, for our new and existing units. Given the flexibility these virtual events provide, which truly are reflective of the responsive environment which exists at MiraVista, they are a here-to-stay tool vital for recruitment,” said Alicia Morel, Talent Acquisition Specialist at MiraVista. “Remote interviews are a convenient option for many job seekers, allowing employers to cast a wide net geographically.”
It is a tool becoming more widely used as surveys indicate a greater growth among employers in virtual recruitment resources. They show that the majority of employers with virtual interviews plan to continue to use them and that more than two-fifths of employers have the capability now to do such interviews.
“We have had other virtual hiring events over the last two years and our flexibility has paid off,” Morel said. “Having the ability to recruit through online events is a definite plus for the employer and an option that accommodates many candidates eager to learn more about MiraVista.”
Morel added that the process for taking part in the behavioral health center’s virtual event is quick, and simple via a short online form. Interviews will then be scheduled with a nurse recruiter, and for qualified candidates a virtual interview with the nurse manager.
“There is great demand today for addiction medicine and mental health services,” Morel said. “We provide both here at MiraVista and our website and virtual hiring events are designed to make the process of joining Team MiraVista as accessible as possible to all interested job seekers.”
A for-profit, independent hospital with a sister facility, TaraVista Behavioral Health Center in Devens, MiraVista Behavioral Health Center opened in April 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic that closed many psychiatric beds in the state for lack of staffing.
The continuum of outpatient recovery services at MiraVista include Medication-Assisted Treatment with same-day admission and free transportation, substance use counseling, intensive day treatment programming (with evening sessions and in Spanish) and free Narcan that can reverse an opioid drug overdose. Its inpatient psychiatric programs added new adult units this summer and are set to expand further in the coming months.
