PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - If you're trained in the medical field, and looking for a job, you may be in luck.

Through Friday, Bay Medical Sacred Heart is holding a career fair from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the hospital.

Organizers say bring your résumé and go to the HR office on the second floor of the Tommy Cooley building at the corner of 7th Street and Bonita Avenue.

Recruiters say they've had a steady stream of candidates so far during the first two days of the career fair, and positions are filling fast. In particular, they're looking for experienced registered nurses and new graduates.

"We are number one in cardiovascular services," Elizabeth Parker said on behalf of Bay Medical Sacred Heart. "As we grow, we are expanding our nurse services by adding [more] cardiovascular nurses. Our trauma center is seeking experienced nurses."

They say they'll be doing on-the-spot interviews with job offers made in the same day. For certain positions, they're giving sign-on bonuses and a benefits package.
