Napa Hospitality & Restaurant Career Fair Brings Out Job Seekers
Collaborative event matches job seekers with employers in the hospitality industry
More than 17 local hotels, restaurants and other companies participated in a career fair to raise awareness of hospitality career growth opportunities in the region and to hire for a wide range of open positions. The career fair was a collaborative effort of the employer-led Napa Hospitality Industry Partnership (Napa HIP) and a wide range of community and education partners, including Workforce Alliance of the North Bay, Napa Valley College, Napa Adult Education, CareerPoint Napa, and K-12 partners.
“We all have jobs available,” said Cheryl Velazquez, director of human resources at Embassy Suites Napa Valley, and a co-chair of the Napa HIP. “In order to fill our individual needs, lodging and restaurants are collaborating through this event. It’s a win-win event for employers and job seekers,” said Velazquez.
