Special Alert

High Priority Occupation

The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau, in cooperation with the Pocono Workforce Investment Board, is working diligently to have additional tourism related jobs added to the regional and/or state High Priority Occupation list.

We were recently successful in having "Sales Representatives" added as a regional High Priority Occupation and will be working towards applying for positions that follow a career pathway. Training funds can be made available to secondary and post secondary schools for occupations considered a high priority. Please contact Nicole Krieger with questions about the Pennsylvania or Pocono Mountains High Priority Occupation Lists or to recommend submitting an application to have a position added to the list.
