St. Augustine | Ponte Vedra Hospitality Industry
Now Hiring Full-time Employees to Meet Demand
Due to the foresight of the St. Johns County, Florida Board of County Commissioners in providing continued tourism funding to maintain awareness and demand during the darker days of COVID-19, the county’s investment is paying dividends.
As a result of consumer confidence in the new vaccines as well as increased pent-up travel demand, the St. Augustine | Ponte Vedra hospitality industry is now in a very aggressive hiring mode for full-time (40 hours/week) as well as part-time employees.
Throughout the area, there are a wide variety of positions available for job seekers including managers, assistant managers, food servers & bartenders, housekeeping, engineering, maintenance, and even actors.
Contrary to common myths about tourism jobs, U.S. Travel Association reports that 40% of workers whose first job was in travel are now earning more than $100,000.
