The free event will be held in conjunction with the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association Palm Beach Chapter and the Palm Beach County Attractions Association from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport, 150 Australian Avenue, West Palm Beach.
Hotels, restaurants and local attractions throughout Palm Beach County will be on-hand and looking to hire for positions at all levels ahead of the busy winter tourism season.

Hospitality is one of Palm Beach County’s top industries, employing more than 70,000 jobs in the local workforce with ample opportunities for flexibility, education and career growth.
“Hospitality jobs are perfect for a wide variety of populations, including students looking to gain some experience, retirees who want to get out of the house and be social, and even those looking for a gateway into a career with multiple pathways for mobility,” Jorge Pesquera says, CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches. “This industry provides enormous opportunities for advancement as well as people and communication skills that can be transferred to any career or job setting,”
