We may just be saying goodbye to winter, but it’s time to apply for summer jobs. On March 15, CONNECT2Careers will be helping young adults get a jump on summer job opportunities at C2C’s Young Adult Job and Resource Fair. This event has been planned to coincide with large-scale increases in hiring for the summer season, which are starting now.
Many employers hiring through C2C, especially those in San Diego’s booming tourism and hospitality industry, need more employees during the summer. To avoid any understaffing at the start of this busy season, employers typically begin to hire for seasonal positions in March and April. Here are some companies located throughout the county who are already recruiting for seasonal positions:
- Hotels: C2C is actively partnered with 11 hotels and resorts throughout the county. Several of these — the Loews Coronado Bay Resort, the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina and the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort — will be present at C2C’s Young Adult Job and Resource Fair to recruit young people for the summer season.
- Parks: C2C is partnered with the majority of amusement parks throughout the county, including SeaWorld, Aquatica, the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and Legoland. These parks have very busy summer seasons and combined hire hundreds of seasonal employees. SeaWorld will be connecting in-person with candidates at the March 15 event, while the others will continue adding positions to the C2C job portal.
- Museums: San Diego’s numerous museums attract many visitors in the summer season, so many report growth in their hiring needs at this time of year. C2C is currently partnered with The New Children’s Museum, who will be at the job fair, and the San Diego Air and Space Museum.
- Restaurants: As the summer season approaches, eateries across the board ramp up staffing. C2C is partnered with an ever-growing list of restaurants. You can find some of our newest partners — Better Buzz Coffee, Krispy Kreme Donuts, Pizza Hut, Common Sense Events and Specialty’s Café — recruiting new team members at C2C’s Summer Job Fair as well.
C2C is excited to promote these and many other opportunities this summer. If you know a young adult who wants to work this summer, now is the best time to get involved with C2C.
