Hospitality and Tourism Job Fair in Treme

** MEDIA ADVISORY ** ** CALENDAR LISTING **

Hospitality and Tourism Job Fair in Tremé
Diverse job opportunities for a range of skill sets in New Orleans' largest industry

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 8, 2016

WHAT
Councilmember Nadine Ramsey and the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau will host a hospitality and tourism career fair featuring various jobs openings within the industry. This is the industry's eighth career fair this year in a series aimed at connecting employers with job-seekers in convenient, relaxed locations, eliminating the pressure of large-scale career fairs.

The Hospitality and Tourism Job Fair is designed to connect job seekers with industry employers in a comfortable and approachable environment, facilitate networking and provide assistance in the hiring process. It is recommended that job seekers bring an updated resume, but is not required.

The Job Fair will include opportunities to meet with a variety of hotel, restaurant and tourism employers one-on-one and learn more about the hiring process. The event is open to everyone. This is the first hospitality and tourism career fair hosted in the Tremé, and is part of a citywide hospitality and tourism job fair series.

A list of participating employers for the September 14 job fair include:

Ace Hotel
Holiday Inn Downtown Superdome
Hotel Management of New Orleans
Hotel Monteleone

WHY
