Greene County and Columbia-Greene Workforce New York
to Host Hospitality Job Fair on May 2
Greene County and Columbia-Greene Workforce New York will be hosting a multi-resort hospitality job fair at the Blackthorne Resort, 348 Sunside Road in East Durham to fill full-time, part-time, seasonal and other employment positions from ages 14 and up, on Sunday, May 2 from 1-3 p.m. Applicants are encouraged to bring resumes, be ready to complete applications and conduct interviews at the Hospitality Job Fair.
The Hospitality Job Fair is a multi-resort owner event at Blackthorne Resort. Zoom Flume Water Park is one of the main employers that will be present. Several other hospitality businesses will be attending, and a variety of employment positions are available through the Hospitality Job Fair.
“As businesses begin to resume regular activities as more of the population is vaccinated and travel increases, there is a need for additional employees for tourism-related businesses,” said Deputy County Administrator Warren Hart. Hart noted that Zoom Flume Water Park, a major seasonal business in the Town of Durham, did not have a 2020 season due to COVID-19 restrictions. As a result, Zoom Flume lost its entire workforce and revenue for the year, and is starting over with new employees for 2021.
“With high unemployment rates and businesses in need of workers, the Workforce Office looks forward to connecting Greene County employers and workers safely and conveniently,” said Chris Nardone, Director of Columbia-Greene Workforce New York.
Masks will be required to be worn for all attendees and social distancing requirements will be maintained. There will be a check-in procedure in accordance with State mandates.
