VERONA, NY - The Oneida Indian Nation and Oneida County are trying to attract recently laid off Disney World workers, and others, to available jobs in Central New York.

The “New Year, New Career” recruitment campaign is designed to target residents living in areas like Orlando, Florida, where tens of thousands in the hospitality industry have been laid off.

Oneida Nation Enterprises says it has culinary, bartending, housekeeping and gaming jobs open. In addition to a paycheck and benefits, there is relocation assistance available as well.

“Our new recruitment campaign spotlights our entire region and the opportunities for a fulfilling career and quality of life in a beautiful four-season destination,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter in a news release. “This campaign is an investment in our future and will ensure that as we return to normalcy, we will maintain the standards that have made us New York’s top destination resort.”

“Time and again, the Oneida Indian Nation reaffirms its unwavering commitment to make our region among the most elite destinations in the country, and this investment to get many of our residents back to work, and also attract new people to our county is just the latest example,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente Jr. “These are tremendous career opportunities for both people living in Central New York as well as those considering relocating to our region.”

ONE says it has 250 hospitality positions open. For more information, click here.
