Wake County Hospitality Job Fair

Raleigh Convention Center
Raleigh Convention Center
March 5, 2019 | Tuesday

The Wake County Hospitality Job Fair has been created with one purpose in mind—to bring potential job seekers of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience together with dozens of hospitality sector employers, all in one setting.

Available positions will likely include:

  • restaurant staff (wait staff, cooks, kitchen staff, custodial)

  • hotel (front-desk, housekeeping, custodial, food-service)

  • attraction (front-desk, office, back-of-house)

At the Job Fair, you will be able to meet with human resources representatives from as many hospitality entities as you would like (or have time for), to introduce yourself, share your resume, even fill out an application. Last year, there were many actual interviews on-site.

The Wake County Hospitality Job Fair is completely free to applicants. Plus, applicants have access to free parking at the Raleigh Convention Center parking deck on the day of the fair. Also, applicants may download free bus passes for the day of the fair for transportation to Raleigh Convention Center. Click here for more information!


A great career path

You may not think of hospitality jobs as a way of launching a great career, but according to Forbes.com, they can be a great beginning for anyone seeking a career path. According to a new study that analyzed data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, workers who began their careers in travel and tourism achieved higher peak salary than most other industries. 

Here are a couple of interesting statistics from the same report:

  • Overall, those whose first job was in a travel-related industry obtained an average career salary of $81,900—significantly higher than those whose first jobs were in manufacturing, construction, healthcare and most other U.S. industries.

  • The travel industry also offers a statistically better career starting point for Americans with less education: workers with a high school degree or less whose first jobs were in travel reached an average career salary of $69,500, five percent greater than the average salary attained by workers who started off in other industries.
