Pocono job fair aims to fill hospitality positions
The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau is organizing a regionwide, in-person job fair on May 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The goal is to introduce job seekers to the hundreds of fun and exciting positions that are available throughout the Poconos’ hospitality industry. Tourism-related employers of all shapes and sizes will be on hand to discuss their open jobs, which include full-time, part-time and seasonal positions from entry to executive level. The PMVB’s job fair will be held at the following locations:
• Blue Mountain Resort: For employment opportunities in Carbon County.
• The Inn at Woodloch: For employment opportunities in Pike/Wayne counties.
• Kalahari Resorts & Conventions: For employment opportunities in Monroe County.
Although advance registration is not required for job seekers, employers interested in participating should register, based on where their job openings are located.
By signing the Pocono Promise, Blue Mountain Resort, The Inn at Woodloch, and Kalahari Resorts & Conventions have committed to prioritizing health and safety. Masks and social distancing are required during the job fair.
“As pandemic-related restrictions continue to ease and the Poconos’ hospitality industry begins regaining normalcy, we understand the critical need to fill jobs and are excited to work with our chambers, CareerLink, Pocono Workforce and our three job fair sites,” said Marlyn Kissner, Vice President of Membership and Community Relations, Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “Partnership and collaboration are key, and we thank everyone involved.”
To further support regional workforce efforts, the PMVB has opened its job openings site to the public.
Nonmember businesses that would like to publicize their hospitality-related job openings in Carbon, Monroe, Pike or Wayne counties can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PMVB’s job openings site, which serves as an employment hub for tourism-related jobs throughout the Poconos, launched in January and is updated regularly as positions are filled and new ones become available.
The site currently features nearly 150 jobs from 35 different properties.
