Visit Harford is teaming up with destination marketing and tourism organizations and their workforce system counterparts from across the state to host a virtual tourism and hospitality job fair Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon.
The statewide virtual job fair, taking place during National Travel & Tourism Week May 1-7, is presented by the Maryland Association of Destination Marketing Organizations, the Maryland Tourism Coalition and their workforce system partners to assist the hospitality industry statewide.
According to a Tourism Economics report, the pandemic resulted in a net loss of more than 45,600 Maryland jobs that directly interact with visitors in 2020. That is more than 30% of all jobs directly supported by visitor activity. Even with those losses, visitor activity in Maryland continued to directly support 104,328 jobs, or 2.9% of all jobs in the state.
