RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association is hosting a virtual job fair for multiple regions across the state.

Anyone looking for a job in Charlottesville, Richmond, Hampton Roads or the Shenandoah Valley is encouraged to sign up, HERE.

“One year into the pandemic and the industry is facing many challenges, but one of the highest is staffing challenges. As many have found jobs outside of the industry, restaurants, lodging, and entertainment businesses are looking to attract new employees into the industry,” a release said.

The event will be on May 27 from 1-5 p.m.

The Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association says 84% of restaurants say staffing levels are lower than normal.
