CAREER — Stop by Mo Joe Coffee Co. in downtown Kokomo on Jan. 22 from 9 to 11 a.m. and see Bona Vista’s staff recruiter, Marcy Kistler.

Are you currently searching for a career with an organization that has a long-standing history in the community where you live, work, and play? If you are looking for a meaningful and fulfilling career, then Bona Vista can help you find a position to meet your needs.

Our staff recruiter, Marcy Kistler, has been here, there, and everywhere trying to get the word out about the available opportunities we have at Bona Vista. She has been to coffee shops, professional networking events, employment offices, etc.

If you missed us at any of those events, no worries! We still have more ways for you to connect with us this month and throughout the year out in the community or via social media.

Speaking of social media, on Jan. 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Marcy will host an online Virtual Job Fair on Facebook. Be sure to “Like” Bona Vista Programs Recruiting Facebook page (@bvjobs) so you get all of the up-to-date information on current job postings. But, what’s so neat about the Virtual Job Fairs is that you don’t have to get out and go anywhere. We never know what the weather is going to be in January, so as long as you are on Facebook you don’t have to get out in it! Check out our different career opportunities from the comfort of your home and know that during those times Marcy will also be on Facebook to answer any questions you may have!

Then, on Jan. 22 from 9 to 11 a.m. she will host a Coffee & Careers at Mo Joe Coffee Shop downtown. What is not to love about this? Stop by, get a warm beverage, and say, “Hi!” to Marcy who will be there with a laptop to help you apply for a new career. She also will have all of the information you could possibly want regarding our open positions if you have questions.
