Ilocos Norte’s tourism industry seeks more workers

The Provincial Tourism Office will hire more tourism workers to adequately serve and assist visitors in Laoag, amid the anticipated influx of visitors this summer.

“Our tourism employment program is in again this summer so we are again hiring tourism ambassadors, first aid personnel, utility persons, and senior citizen guides. Basic qualification is they should be at least 18 years old and show interest in tourism work,” Provincial Tourism Officer Aianree Raquel said Monday.

As in past years, Raquel said students, out-of-school youth and senior citizens are most welcome to join as long as they are enthusiastic about improving tourism in the province.

Since Friday last week, the Provincial Tourism Office has already begun accepting candidates.

The incoming workers shall serve the provincial government in working as tourist aides, utility personnel, and paramedics in the 42 tourist centers across the province starting March until the end of the summer season.

Interested candidates may submit their credentials at the tourist center of the La Tabacalera Lifestyle Center, Laoag City, or to their respective city or municipal tourism officers until March 24, 2019.
