Online Hiring Event to Offer Leisure and Hospitality Job Opportunities in Eagle County

Hiring event now running online through October 15

The Edwards Workforce Center is hosting an online hiring event for individuals interested in jobs in the Leisure and Hospitality industry in Eagle County.  As the industry gears up for the winter tourism season, employers such as ski resorts, retail outlets and restaurants in Vail and Beaver Creek have hundreds of positions to fill in lift operations, rentals, ski school and sales.

In addition, several hotels (Sonnenalp Hotel; Vail Cascade Resort, Spa and Condominiums; The Ritz-Carlton; Bachelor Gulch; East West Resorts and The Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa) will be participating in the hiring event, recruiting staff for housekeeping, restaurant operations and guest services.

The job fair has now opened its virtual doors at www.connectingcolorado.com.  After registering at the website, job seekers can visit the hiring event at any time 24 hours a day through October 15.

Perhaps the most important “room” at the virtual event will be the Live Chat area.  Each of the participating hotels and resorts have set aside time for job seekers to speak directly with someone in their HR department.  In one click, job seekers can chat in real time with representatives from.

“This interactive feature gives job seekers a chance to make that critical first impression,” advises Rosemary Pettus, Director of the Edwards Workforce Center.  “This is where you can visit with recruiters and get your questions answered.  If you’re prepared, this virtual event can connect you with a great full-time or part-time job.”

The Edwards Workforce Center offers a range of services to job seekers and Colorado employers, all at no charge.  For job seekers interested in learning more about this virtual job fair or for employers interested in having a similar event staged to meet their staffing needs, contact the Edwards Workforce Center at 0069 Edwards Access Road, Suite 11B.  Staff can be reached at 970-926-4440 or CDLE_edwards_wfc@state.co.us.
