WilmingtonBiz Talk: Hospitality Jobs Snapshot

By Vicky Janowski, posted Apr 22, 2021
From retail to restaurants, Help Wanted signs abound in the Cape Fear region right now. And as the area gets ready for tourism season, the lack of people filling hospitality-related jobs could put a crimp on businesses.

For Thursday's WilmingtonBiz Talk, a panel talk on jobs with representatives from the area's hospitality sector discusses what’s driving the drop in applicants and what might come next. Outreach from the local colleges, such as CFCC's job board, might provide one solution.

View the full conversation below. Also listen to this and future weekly WilmingtonBiz Talk discussions on the Business Journal's new podcast, available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.



BizTalk is livestreamed on the Business Journal's Facebook page each week at noon Thursday. For notifications on upcoming topics, sign up for newsletters at wilmingtonbiz.com/register and to submit topic or speaker ideas, email [email protected].
