Tourism is a top Baltimore employer with exciting opportunities for local talent and career progression. For Tourism Week 2017, the Visit Baltimore Foundation and Visit Baltimore teamed up with the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development to host a first-ever tourism sector-focused career pathways and job-readiness fair. Our goal? For job-seekers and students to network with top Baltimore area employers from a variety of industry sectors; hear from individuals and inspirational speakers; and, take advantage of free resources in one place.
