#PoweredbyJobs: Washington celebrates second annual Hospitality Month

Happy Workforce Wednesday and Happy Hospitality Month!

As partners in Washington state’s WorkSource system and the American Job Center Network, the Employment Security Department helps people – unemployed or not – find new jobs and learn new skills. We help them experience the life-changing Power of a Job.

We also work with businesses to help them find employees because we know they’re Powered by Jobs. This week we’re sharing a Powered by Jobs story featuring Sandra Miller, workforce development manager for the Washington Hospitality Association’s Education Foundation. The Hospitality Association and WorkSource are partnering to connect workers with jobs in the industry.

If you’re looking for work or want to change careers, Sandra is talking to you!

Here’s Sandra:

I want to talk to you today about Hospitality Month. The month of May, 2018, was proclaimed by the Governor to be Hospitality Month, where we get to celebrate all the wonderful career opportunities there are in hospitality.

The Association has 6,500 members that are ready to welcome you into their establishments in entry-level positions, mid-level positions and senior-management positions. We want you and we need you!

It’s great opportunity, and part of that opportunity is a partnership that we have with the Employment Security Department and the WorkSource offices around the state.

Those WorkSource offices and their business representatives are crucial in the work that we do to connect employers to the available workforce.

The other thing that we’ve been able to do, that we’re quite proud of, is wahospitalitycareers.com. That’s a website spotlighted within WorkSourceWA.com specifically for hospitality.

It can connect you into jobs. It can connect you into training opportunities. And, it can connect you into career pathways in our industry.
