ATLANTA (CBS46) — Hotels Across The Country Are Hiring!
This is the message hoteliers want to convey to people looking for a job.
To help fill thousands of open hotel jobs and to communicate the benefits of a career in the hospitality industry, the American Hotel & Lodging Association has announced a new advertising campaign in five major hotel markets.
In some markets, advertising will run online, on radio and in print through August.
“With the recovery of leisure travel, the hospitality industry must fill thousands of vacancies to meet increasing consumer demand for travel. To get more workers to join the industry, hotels are offering employees a more competitive salary, flexible hours, and additional benefits, including paid time off, health care benefits, retirement savings, and more.
Hotels are looking to fill positions in housekeeping, management, catering and guest services.
The new surge comes as the hospitality industry tries to recover from the financial impact of COVID-19.
During the pandemic, up to 80% of hotel workers were laid off.
Anyone looking for a job in the hospitality industry has two options to apply.
Applicants can view a list of open positions on hotelsarehiring.com or view hotel vacancies on Indeed.com.
