As the COVID-19 pandemic has lessened, people across the country are increasingly planning and taking vacations. The high influx of travelers into Arizona has prompted the Arizona Office of Tourism to partner with career development organizations ARIZONA@WORK and Pipeline AZ to launch a new initiative connecting job-seekers with the career opportunities available across Arizona’s tourism and hospitality industry.

“Currently, many of our hotels and resorts aren’t able to fill to capacity because of staffing challenges,” said Debbie Johnson, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “Our new tourism and hospitality workforce development efforts are designed to fill that gap.”

Thousands of jobs are currently available, from management and sales positions to concierge, valet, front-desk managers, housekeeping, maintenance and food prep positions. Through the new initiative, the Office of Tourism offers resources for job seekers and employers across the state through ARIZONA@WORK, including links to job listings, resume and interviewing assistance and training resources. Pipeline AZ connects the entire workforce ecosystem, serving the needs of hospitality and tourism businesses, job seekers, educators and workforce organizations simultaneously through its platform.
