Essentia Health will host a full day of job interviews Thursday, Sept. 23, for all positions at the Essentia Health Sports Center in Brainerd, rain or shine.

Essentia Health recruiters will greet candidates, determine their employment eligibility, conduct an initial screening and filter them to appropriate hiring managers for interviews. Selected candidates will be verbally offered a position before leaving the event. A formal offer will come once recruiters are back in the office.

Candidates should bring a resume if possible, but it’s not required. Attire is business casual. All attendees are encouraged to wear a mask.


The event will be outdoors at the Essentia Health Sports Center at 502 Jackson St.
