Help from AHEC


Career Fair Coordination

Are you interested in hosting a career fair for your school or area’s students? The process can be challenging to coordinate, but help is available. The North Dakota AHEC staff has experience in coordinating healthcare career specific career fairs on small to large scales. 



Marketplace for Kids is a wonderful opportunity for upper elementary and middle school students to explore their creativity, brainstorm innovative ideas, and learn about careers and future possibilities. These events are held regionally.

For more information, please go to the Marketplace for Kids website or talk to your students’ teacher.


a Visit

The job outlook for healthcare professions is growing all the time. If you would like to introduce your students to the many opportunities available to them in the future, North Dakota AHEC staff can visit your school to discuss careers in healthcare with students. Did you know there are over 200 careers within the healthcare industry? Many of these careers can be found within this Career Ladder (PDF). Another great resource to utilize as you explore a potential healthcare career is a career interest inventory (PDF), which can help you narrow down careers to research at the Explore Health Careers website.
