Charleston, South Carolina – Everyone looking for a job in the hospitality industry should visit the job fair in North Charleston today, Wednesday.
As the pandemic restrictions are being lifted, more and more tourists are visiting Charleston and surrounding areas. Also, Charleston residents tend to spend more time outside with their families and friends.
Hospitality industry in Charleston will host the fair and dozens of employers will be on site to hire. The fair is hosted in order to keep up with the demand.
One restaurant owner even said that they have been putting job postings in the last period, but only a few applications were received.
“Unfortunately, as we all know the hospitality segment got hit pretty hard with last spring,” said Jill Maynard, the Executive Director of the Lowcountry Hospitality Association. “Not all of the positions that were vacated last spring have been filled.”
Hotels are seeing positive trend in new bookings, but some of them are unable to accept new bookings since they don’t have enough staff to get the rooms ready. The issue becomes even bigger when they can’t provide the expected quality and experience the guests are looking for.
40 employers including casual restaurants to top-tier hotels will be at the fair. Every level of work in the hospitality industry will be available including hostesses, servers, bartenders, hotel desk assistants, housekeepers, cooks, up to executive positions.
The job fair is open to anyone looking for a hospitality job. It will be Wednesday, April 7th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the North Charleston Coliseum. It is free to attend and there will be free parking in Lot B.
