I am contacting you to invite your school’s MFT students and alumni to attend the 8th annual MFT Job and Internship Fair, which is being hosted by the Long Beach-South Bay Chapter of CAMFT (California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists). We have invited employers from all over Southern California to come and meet therapists (both licensed and pre-licensed) who are seeking positions in the mental health field. We’ve had wonderful success at helping therapists find open positions (jobs, internships, and traineeships) at local agencies and in private practices. It is an excellent opportunity for students to find practicum sites or positions for after they graduate. Our website has additional information about the event, including employers who have indicated they will attend.
In addition to the employers, we will also have two Roundtable discussion groups. These focus on topics that may be of interest to the applicants, such as resume and interviewing support and how to find and build a private practice while pre-licensed. They’re ongoing throughout the event, so attendees can just drop in whenever it’s convenient. As with the employers, more information can be found on our registration page.
The Job Fair will take place on April 17, 2015 from 10:00am – 1:00pm in Torrance at the Holiday Inn (19800 S. Vermont). There is a $10 charge to attendees, which includes continental breakfast and free parking.
If you are interested and/or would like more information, I am part of the Planning Committee so I can answer any questions you may have. I hope you will pass this opportunity along to your students and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or for more information.
