What you need to know about job openings and job postings at travel staffing agencies
The number of U.S. employers looking for travel staffing agents has more than doubled over the past year, according to data from the Travel Industry Association.
And the trend could continue.
Travel staffing agencies employ more than 7 million Americans, up from about 4 million in the first half of this year.
The rise in vacancies is largely due to companies changing their hiring practices, said Andrew Leventhal, a senior research analyst with IBISWorld.
While some employers have moved toward hiring for remote positions, others are opting to hire local talent.
“Some companies have changed their hiring philosophies,” Leventhi said.
They can give you an idea of how the industry works.” “
It’s a different way of thinking about travel staffing, because you’re looking at the people that are actually in the travel industry and have actually worked in the industry.
They can give you an idea of how the industry works.”
The industry has been struggling since the 2008 recession, when companies closed more than 1 million positions, according the Travel industry Association.
Many companies cut costs by downsizing and shifting staffing from regional centers to offices in major cities.
But travel staffing still accounts for about 7% of the U.s. economy, up roughly 30% since the recession, according IBISworld.
The surge in vacancies comes at a time when the government is looking to hire more workers to fill vacant positions.
President Donald Trump has called for hiring a million more border agents in his first 100 days.
But in his executive order last week, Trump proposed that companies be required to offer more than three weeks’ notice before hiring an agent, and companies must be required by law to train their workers.
“While we may have to wait until next year for the Department of Homeland Security to issue new guidance, we will be doing everything in our power to make sure employers hire the best talent available, to ensure the best jobs are available, and to help Americans stay in their jobs,” Levehella said.
