Workforce Development

The YWCA Elgin & Advocate Aurora Health Workforce Development program offers a 9 week paid internship. This internship includes both clinical (C.N.A. & Phlebotomy) and entry level non-clinical healthcare positions.

During the internship the YWCA will prepare you with practice interviews, updating resumes, and coaching to increase your employability.  Next you will participate in three – 3 week rotations. These rotations will give you the opportunity to explore different jobs and departments. The internship program changes annually depending on the need.  Examples of non-clinical departments may include dietary and nutrition, housekeeping, supplies, and patient transport. Clinical departments can include patient/surgery, orthopedics/neurology, baby/maternal feeding, and floater pool.

The internship program has the potential to lead to permanent job offers at the end of the 9 weeks.  Advocate Aurora Health offered a paid position to 80% of our students in 2017.

If you are interested in participating in our Workforce Development program or would like more information, please call Rose Diaz at 847.742.7930
