Students from Port Clinton High School and Danbury High School flocked to the recent Job Fair 2019 at Port Clinton High School on March 6, especially resorts that were hungry for young workers this summer.
“We had a very good turnout for the Job Fair, with students showing a lot of interest in the wide range of positions we have available this summer,” said Heidi Roland, Supervisor of Welcome Center Operations at Bay Point Resort & Marina in Marblehead.
“We have expanded our food operations at Bay Point Resort & Marina, and will need quality workers all summer long,” she said. “We have a lot of amenities for our members, and we have a lot for our young workers to do when they’re not working, as well. We have a shuttle that takes them by water to Cedar Point Amusement Park, and some of the loveliest beaches in the area that they can enjoy when they’ve got some time off.”
Officials at the Boardwalk Family of Restaurants said they not only have a lot of local young men and women working for them each summer, but many out-of-state and international workers coming to Put-in-Bay to work for the summer.
“Working at Put-in-Bay is a great way to meet new friends from around the region, and even other countries,” said a Boardwalk official. The Boardwalk eateries include The Keys, Dairy Isle, Hooligans and, of course, The Boardwalk restaurant that anchors Put-in-Bay Harbor.
This year’s Job Fair was open to adults early in the day, with Port Clinton and Danbury students filling the Port Clinton High School Gymnasium in the afternoon. Many said that living and working summers in a resort community provides a wide range of opportunities to find a job and earn money for college.
