Same trusted name, new & enhanced features
Led by Ron Mitchell, CEO, and Doug Tutt, COO, this groundbreaking new chapter for Hcareers will build on the 20+ years of success we’ve already had as the hospitality industry’s #1 career resource. We’re proud of the thousands of careers we’ve helped launch in what we believe is the most dynamic and exciting industry on the planet!
“Our most valuable assets are 1) our reputation in the hospitality industry as a trusted career resource and 2) the relationships we have with candidates and employers. These two things are priceless and the driving force behind all of the exciting changes we have planned for Hcareers,” says Mitchell.
Chief Operating Officer Doug Tutt emphasizes, “We are focused on building a unique ecosystem through strategic partners and developing new technologies and capabilities for the site that will help people advance their careers by personalizing their job search and offering the best professional development resources for every stage in their hospitality career path.”
The timing couldn't be better!
As Mitchell says, “It’s a great time to be in the hospitality industry!”
With unemployment in the US at its lowest level in nearly 20 years, hospitality professionals have the unique advantage of a job market with more available jobs than there are people to fill them.
“It’s more important than ever for candidates to have access to the best opportunities and be able to make informed, strategic career choices that will benefit them in the long run and help them to become the strongest job candidates they can possibly be,” says Mitchell.
For employers, the tight labor market raises the bar for recruitment marketing, employer branding, and access to technology that connects them with the best talent in the hospitality industry.
“We’re excited to be at the forefront of developing innovative solutions for the hospitality industry that aim to solve the challenges for both our job seekers and customers alike,” says Tutt.
