(Welch, MN) — February 27th, 2023 — Good news for Minnesota’s leisure and hospitality workers — it’s Minnesota’s no. 1 fastest-growing industry right now — a real rebound as we approach three years since covid nearly ground the industry to a halt.
“It’s great to see leisure and hospitality jobs returning after covid disrupted the industry three years ago,” said Aaron Seehusen, public relations manager at Treasure Island Resort & Casino. “The trend is a real win for workers, and I’m so glad that we at Treasure Island get to be a part of helping drive Minnesota job growth.”
According to Seehusen, demand exists for leisure and hospitality jobs of all kinds in Minnesota right now. In particular, the entertainment category — including resorts and casinos like Treasure Island — is in need of workers. In fact, Minnesota’s entertainment jobs have grown 30% since last year alone, per state data.
“Even if you’re new to the industry, there are opportunities out there for you,” Seehusen said. “For jobseekers, I recommend looking beyond companies’ websites — connect with the industry on LinkedIn. There are tons of opportunities to learn and grown in leisure and hospitality.”
For Minnesota jobseekers who are interested in learning more, Treasure Island is hosting its Island Way Career Night this Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the property, located at 5734 Sturgeon Lake Rd., Welch, MN 55089.
