Help wanted for SHIELD testing
We plan to implement SHIELD testing for students at our schools the week of Sept. 20. In order for the process to run with minimal disruption to the school day, Med-Call Healthcare, which is coordinating the SHIELD testing at our schools, is hiring committed candidates to assist with collection of SHIELD testing kits. These positions are not demanding, but timely attendance and commuting throughout the day may be involved. All job candidates must have their own transportation.
Those who are hired will be expected to work during school hours. Strong computer/data entry experience is required. Although healthcare experience is ideal, it is not a requirement for this position.
Please contact Kathleen Loomis of Med-Call Healthcare at 708-971-3656 or [email protected]
Once you contact Kathleen, more information will be shared about assignments, requirements, locations and training.
