PHILADELPHIA, July 6, 2020 – VISIT PHILADELPHIA® today announced the launch of visitphilly.com/jobs, a centralized job resource for Greater Philadelphia’s tourism and hospitality industry to help make it easier for people to get back to work. The page currently features hotel and restaurant jobs and will soon expand to include employment opportunities at museums and attractions, making it a convenient, one-stop shop for those looking for jobs in tourism.
Instead of going to individual hotel and restaurant sites to search for opportunities, job seekers can go to visitphilly.com/jobs to see what’s available in one place.
“From February through April, Philadelphia lost 44,000 leisure and hospitality jobs. As the tourism industry begins to rebound, it will be important for employers to fill positions quickly,” said Jeff Guaracino, president & CEO, VISIT PHILADELPHIA. “This new resource is a much-needed one, and I’m grateful to the Greater Philadelphia Hotel Association and our hoteliers for inspiring us to create it.”
The hotel section of the site is powered by Hcareers, and the restaurant section is powered by Culinary Agents. In addition, the new page features job training resources in Philadelphia from Drexel University’s Food and Hospitality Management Department; Temple University’s School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management; Philadelphia Opportunities Industrialization Center; The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College; Community College of Philadelphia; and JNA Institute of Culinary Arts.
