Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration announces the availability of employment and job training opportunities in the hospitality industry. The Guam Department of Labor through the American Job Center is actively recruiting interested individuals for the Work Experience program, which is designed to help unemployed people obtain work experience and learn fundamental job-ready skills in order to thrive in the workforce.
“Prior to the pandemic, our hospitality and tourism industry was the driver of Guam’s economy with some 30,000 workers behind the wheel,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “While we have invested heavily in diversifying our economy with the goal of securing sustainable revenue streams, our vision is that this sleeping sector will exponentially rebound and create thousands of job opportunities for the people of Guam.”
“Our administration distributed millions in financial assistance and unemployment relief to tourism businesses and hospitality workers in the last few years, and we are optimistic these businesses and workers have much to contribute to our recovery,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “With easing international quarantine policies and promising visitor arrivals, our island will need a ready hospitality workforce. We encourage eligible individuals to register today.”
