Covid Update from Patrice Rice, CEO Founder

I've been recruiting in the hospitality industry for 30 years and have seen the restaurant and hospitality industry rebound through many crises. Once again Hospitality leads the way in the nation’s recovery. There is no question the hospitality industry has been hit the hardest but the HEALING PROCESS HAS BEGUN!

In March, restaurants and bars gained 176,000 jobs. Hospitality led the way in the March U.S. jobs report and had the largest increase of any industry, as economic activity resumes while the nationwide unemployment rate dropped to 6%.

As Restaurant/Hospitality Recruiters, we are playing a big part in re-staffing many diverse companies. Some are using their PPP money to assist with staffing their locations. It seems like every day companies are reach out to us asking for helping filling positions.

Now that the vaccine has been distributed and continues to be distributed, the “flood gates” have started to open. We are seeing a huge wave of companies opening new locations, restaffing and there are smiles of people’s faces once again.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Jonathan Litt was an amazing coach during my job search.

    The thing that stands out to me the most is you can tell he truly cares. He helped me gain self confidence through phone calls and was constantly checking in on me during the interview process. Not only was I able to acquire a great job with the help of Jonathan, but I received incredible insight. He is a very smart guy and is able to effectively explain his thoughts in a simple manner.          

    Thank you so much!

    Jacque J.

    Jonathan Litt was an amazing coach during my job search.
  • Karen Horton is personable, knowledgeable, and was instrumental to my Career Goals.

    Communication and correspondence with her was easy and fast and her feedback always proved very useful during the recruitment process.  With other recruiters I have dealt with in the past, I've usually had the impression that I was merely part of a quota of applications. This was not so with Karen, I am convinced that she had my best interest in mind as well as those of the company she was "hunting" me for.    

    I cannot thank Karen enough for all her assistance in what I am sure will be a long lasting relationship with my new employer.

    Regards,

    Carlos
