A coalition of six associations is proud to announce that it has opened an online tourism career center. The coalition includes the Maine Tourism Association, Hospitality Maine, Retail Association of Maine, Maine Summer Camps, Maine Campground Owners Association, and Maine Golf. The Maine Tourism Career Center, which can be found at www.mainetourismjobs.com, will be a central resource for Maine’s tourism-related jobs.
The Maine Tourism Career Center will include full-time and seasonal job listings for employers to advertise their positions. Job seekers can upload their resumes, search for job opportunities and connect directly with employers, have a career coach assist with writing a resume, access interview, resume, and networking tips, find information on career pathways within all segments of the tourism industry, and sign up to receive weekly job alerts from their field of interest. There is no cost to the job seeker to utilize these services. Businesses that are members of any of coalition associations can utilize the Career Center at a discounted price.
“This is a true online Career Center and is so much more than the traditional job board we tend to think of,” said Tony Cameron, CEO of the Maine Tourism Association. “The key to our success is the partnership with these other great organizations. With everyone’s buy-in, we can offer tourism job seekers a single site where they can learn about all of the great career opportunities in Maine, as well as understand all of the career pathways available to those who work in tourism.”
The Career Center coalition will promote all of the unique, exciting, and varied career opportunities in our state’s tourism industry to job seekers in and out of state. While there won’t be a shortage of Maine employers posting job openings, the challenge is getting a strong pool of job seekers interested in working in Maine to populate the resume bank. To address this challenge there will be a paid marketing strategy in and out of state through social media and other outlets to drive people to the Career Center. Also, the Career Center will be presented to high school and college students in Maine.
“We are thrilled to be a part of MTA’s innovative on-line career center. Retail is one of Maine’s largest private employment sectors, employing more than 80,000 people. The career center will be a beneficial conduit in connecting businesses with qualified candidates searching for employment in the many career paths that exist in the retail field,” stated Mari O’Neil, Director of the Maine Business Education Partnership, the workforce development arm of the Retail Association of Maine.
“A new site dedicated to hospitality jobs in Maine could be the missing link in the hospitality hiring chain. It’s one crucial step in solving the chronic labor shortage this sector sustains year after year,” said Matt Lewis, CEO of HospitalityMaine. “Connecting outstanding candidates to our world-class hospitality businesses is a great new resource for our members.”
