Owens Health Career Expo attracts jobseekers

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Dressed to impress, with resumes in hand, they searched for work.

"I'm trying to find a new career path, and start fresh," said Daniel Johnson, who took part in the Owens Health Career Expo on Tuesday.

Johnson is a line worker at Jeep who got his master's degree in his spare time. Now he's banking on his education, experience and the boomer generation to carve his new path.

"I want to be the next generation of leaders to try to go into that field and help my father's generation, my mother's generation and to help them further their lives," Johnson explained.

ProMedica Health System, the Cleveland Clinic and The Ohio State University Medical Center were at the expo to share information about their opportunities.

But the question remains: Will future healthcare professionals have to move away from Ohio to move forward?

"They'll be able to find jobs here in town. It's competitive, much more than it used to be," said Deb Scott who is with Mercy Health Partners. She says the shaky economy has healthcare workers hanging tight to theirs jobs.

"Nothing is safe when you have an economy like this. Is it worth the try? Absolutely," Scott said.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995. The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees.
