If you recruit talent for the hospitality and tourism industry, you’re likely assessing your staffing needs right now. While the summer travel season runs smoothly in the background, you’re looking toward the winter and even 2016, planning for holiday travel and the free time that Americans will spend dining out and indulging in entertainment.

But as you plan, you may be missing the opportunity to hire the first wave of motivated hospitality talent. Recently the Simply Hired data team took a look at the job search pattern around hospitality and tourism jobs.
