Job.travel, the travel and hospitality industry’s premium employment site, will be featured at the 3rd Annual HR in Hospitality Conference and Expo, March 17-19, 2009 in Orlando, Florida. Designed to be easy to use, Job.travel is a complimentary site for job seekers and is very cost effective for employers. With the ability to quickly search candidates and job opportunities from handheld, mobile devices or desktop computers, job.travel is ideal for human resource professionals and hospitality employers looking for the right candidates and at the right price. On average, the cost of an annual subscription is below the cost of one job posting on other job sites.
This year’s HR in Hospitality conference and expo will consist of networking, research gathering, and the unveiling of new products. Developed by Cornell University School of Hotel Administration and Cornell University ILR School, the educational seminars include topics such as Managing Major Organizational Change: Effective Training, Communication and Integration, Employee Development as a Strategy for Growth, and How to Earn the Highest Returns on Your Human Capital Investments.
As a senior partner of Cornell’s Center for Hospitality Research, job.travel will be exhibiting at the event. It will give both job.travel and Cornell’s Center for Hospitality Research an opportunity to highlight a recent study. Intended to define the labor market for employees and employers, the study focuses on the actual knowledge and skills for a particular hospitality job. The outcome of the study demonstrates that one can match jobs with similar skills but with diverse titles and seemingly unrelated industries.
In recessionary times, when job opportunities seem slender in the industry, an approach that uses skill matching can expand a job seeker’s marketability. By the same token, when labor markets are tight, hotel managers might wish that they could recruit workers from different industries, but which other professions and fields? A new Job Compatibility Index developed at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration provides an answer.
