US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association
With the June 20 launch of the USVI Hotel & Tourism Association’s online job bank, employers and candidates have a new hub for listing and searching available jobs. Employers can log on today to begin advertising available positions and searching for qualified candidates while job candidates can browse opportunities, see companies seeking employees and upload a resume.
“The job bank offers a valuable tool to place and seek employment opportunities in the USVI post-storms. With all of the hotel and business closures, I have been contacted by several businesses looking for employees as well as unemployed workers looking for jobs. The newly created job bank offers a one-stop-shop for Virgin Islanders to facilitate employment opportunities in the territory,” said USVIHTA President Lisa Hamilton.
During the first phase of the roll out, the job bank will be available to USVIHTA members, St. Croix Hotel & Tourism Association members and businesses not affiliated with either association. Available jobs will capture all aspects of the tourism industry from food and beverage to hospitality as well as other private and public sector positions posted by non-members.
In a future phase of the job bank, access will only be available to USVIHTA members. The job bank site features a link for non-members interested in applying for membership and continuing their access to the wealth of candidates in the job bank.
The idea for the job bank was born after Hamilton attended Caribbean Travel Marketplace in January and learned that the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association would be launching a regional job bank. As the territory was heavily impacted by the devastating storms of 2017, Hamilton felt it would be beneficial for the U.S. Virgin Islands to have a local network for employers and employees.
The skilled creative team at Social Caddie, a marketing company offering a broad range of services, assisted USVIHTA in designing the online job bank. Social Caddie has worked with the association on numerous projects over the years and, recognizing the fragile state of the territory, created the bank at a substantial discount.
