Concord, NH (PressExposure) February 09, 2009 -- With a challenging economy, the hospitality and service industries continue to seek talent, reaching out to a diverse workforce that realizes the career opportunities available in restaurants, hotels and retail.
The two leading job boards, http://www.womeninhospitality.com and http://www.diversityinhospitality.com, in the industry have provided a valuable link between both job seekers and human resource professionals. The sites were created in 2008 by Goodwin & Associates Hospitality Services, a leading talent resource company.
âWe see and hear about success stories on our job board websites each week â and especially in todayâs challenging economy that is great news for our members and employers seeking qualified talent,â said Eric Goodwin, President.
