Discover Your Career Path and Opportunities for Growth
For the vast majority of ACR Homes employees, work comes to represent far more than just a paycheck.
A lot of our people join us because they’re interested in careers in healthcare, in which case the chance to interact regularly with our residents and staff can offer an invaluable behind-the-scenes perspective. Would-be medical professionals are able to see other practitioners in action, learn basic care-giving skills, experience problem-solving firsthand, and gain a better understanding of whether they’d be a good fit — all while developing relationships with residents and enjoying the intrinsic rewards of helping them lead better lives.
In other cases, people come to us expecting little more than an enjoyable workplace and a chance to make a living. Then they find their hearts so touched by our residents — and see the nature of the work as so compelling — that they “get the calling” to return to school to pursue more advanced careers in healthcare.
Either way, our staff are often ahead of their peers when it comes to accruing key on-the-job experience that can help them qualify for educational programs and/or earn new degrees. Instead of starting their formal medical training as untried newcomers, our people often move forward with a substantial resume of experiences and hours that count toward in-field requirements. In fact, many of our employees who are students are able to custom-design their own ACR Homes internships to correspond with their interests and specific areas of study.
