"When I was working in the hospitality industry, we would just grab seasonal people -- if you had a pulse, you'd be hired," says Jeff Lolli, an instructor at Widener University's School of Hospitality Management in Chester, Pa. "Today there's a much greater pool of people, and employers are being extremely selective." Students Are a Better Value than Ever Students with a healthy work ethic have always been a strategic component of the seasonal workforce, even if they have little or no industry-specific background. But now, with jobs scarce, students in a given industry provide even greater value as seasonal employees -- and more are available for work. "It's become very difficult for our hospitality students to get seasonal positions," says Lolli.
