Plenty of folks are interested in careers in the hospitality industry. They stopped by Savannah Technical College today for the first-ever Coastal Empire Hospitality Job Fair. The event featured 24 local hospitality-related businesses hiring employees in a variety of areas for Savannah's spring tourism season and beyond.
"We hope the employers will be able to find people for the open positions they have," said organizer Caleb Parker. "We hope that people who are looking for jobs can find a job. And we hope to spread the awareness of the hospitality industry as a career, not just an entry-level position."
There are 16,000 jobs locally in the hospitality industry which brings in billions of dollars to the Low Country and Coastal Empire.
