Hospitality Technology Next Generation and Hospitality Upgrade announced the launch of the HTNG Career Center, an industry-exclusive job portal designed to connect qualified hospitality professionals with potential employers and provide a range of career and recruiting resources to the hospitality market.

"The hotel industry has been severely disrupted by recent events, and HTNG wants to do our part to help ensure a rapid recovery and future success for both our member companies and the people who serve this dynamic global market sector," said David Sjolander, COO of HTNG. "The association has always played an informal role in the recruiting and job-seeking process through referrals and networking, so now we are taking that a step further by teaming up with Hospitality Upgrade in the launch of the HTNG Career Center."

In addition to meeting a long-term need for hospitality-specific career resources, the portal also will connect newly displaced hospitality professionals with potential employers who need their specific experience and expertise.

The new HTNG Career Center provides a searchable database for potential employers and both active and passive jobseekers, as well as access to an array of resources, such as free resume review, interview tips and advice on networking opportunities and career advancement. Employers can post open positions on the site and search the resume bank for available qualified candidates. They also have the ability to reach out to as many candidates as they like via the portal at no charge, since a fee only applies if the candidate is interested.

Hospitality professionals can upload their resumes anonymously, search and apply for open positions through the HTNG Career Center. In addition, they can respond to employers who inquire about their resume and are interested in interviewing them.

In order to further assist hospitality companies and professionals during the crisis, HTNG is offering a reduced introductory rate of $99 for a 30-day job posting through May 30, 2020. Visit https://careers.htng.org/ for more information.
