Find an Arizona tourism job at this virtual job fair in June

When the COVID-19 pandemic displaced thousands of hospitality workers, the Arizona Office of Tourism scrambled to help people find jobs at places like grocery stores and hospitals by connecting them with employers who needed their skill sets. 

A year later, AOT Deputy Director Becky Blaine, who organized that effort to connect employees and employers, finds herself once again helping job hunters. This time, she wants to bring them back to the tourism industry. 

“Now we’re finding, as you know, things are opening back up, there’s more consumer confidence happening. People are traveling again now that they’ve been vaccinated. We really have to ramp back up our tourism workforce across the state,” Blaine said.

She points to data collected by Longwoods International, a travel research consultant,  showing 90 percent of travelers have travel plans in the next six months, the highest percentage since the start of the pandemic.
