BOCA GRANDE — The Gasparilla Inn & Club is hoping to hire up to 50 people for the coming winter season at a job fair from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 11 at 500 Palm Ave., Boca Grande.

The inn’s president and general manager Jack Damioli said he doesn’t discriminate when it comes to bringing in new faces to the Inn. As long as you’re dedicated and hard working, he has a place for you.

“When we find a qualified candidates, we’ll find places for them,” he said. “We believe in hiring warm and welcoming people and we can train for job-specific skills.”

The inn has been holding the job fairs at the beginning and in the middle of season for the last four years, Damioli said.

Kim Pulaskie, director of human resources at the inn, said they have 100 people on staff year round and up to 325 during the season that runs from October to July.

“All four of our department managers will be on-site,” Pulaskie said.

Damioli said they will be looking for a variety of positions including painters, custodians, housekeeping, golf staff, hospitality and servers, among others. The candidate may be placed accordingly based on the interview.

“If we can hire 30 to 50 people from this job fair, I would consider that a success,” Damioli said. “People should bring their résumé and be mindful of appearance like any job interview.”

Pulaskie said candidates should make appointments so organizers can gauge the number of applicants.

“We’re looking to hire a mix of part time, full time and seasonal,” Damioli said.
