All Irish need apply! Growth in demand for Irish to fill U.S. service jobs
Leading U.S. organizations appeal for qualified Irish workers
There is an increased demand for Irish employees to fill labor gaps in the U.S. hospitality industry, according to leading business organizations based here.
Brendan Barry, the president of Irish Business Solutions, an employment agency based on the east coast of the U.S., said there is a great demand for Irish people to fill service industry jobs.
“If I had the right people tomorrow, I would put over 100 people to work tomorrow,” he told RTE News.
“Every one of those jobs are genuine jobs that I have on my books ready to fill if I can get the right people that can get a visa.”
Aoife Corcoran came to the U.S. on a trial basis three months ago and is working as a trainee bar manager in the Galway Bay Bar and Restaurant in Annapolis, Maryland.
“I am the only Irish person working here in this bar,” she told RTE news.
“I thought I was going to come, earn some money and leave again but they really want to get people involved here, it’s completely different."

“My idea of America is completely different now than what I thought it was,” said the young woman.
Anthony Clarke, Owner & CEO of the Irish Restaurant Company, told RTE that within his company, there are plenty of employment prospects for experienced Irish workers.
“We have three restaurants in this state here, one in Massachusetts also. So we could place at least two in each restaurant straight away and incorporate them into our training program”
Meanwhile, international recruitment firm Workaway International has extended their recruitment drive to Irish shores this year.
“We are targeting the Irish market because of the natural hospitality instinct in our culture,” spokeswoman Angela Herrington told IrishCentral.
“The level of customer service and educational level is outstanding and their willingness to go the extra mile is what makes the Irish worker so desirable.”
The company places over 900 people in hospitality jobs each season in private country golf clubs in South Florida.
“We offer jobs for prep cooks, chefs, bartenders, servers, bussers, hostesses, golf attendants and spa clerks,” Herrington added.
Successful candidates are offered return flights to the U.S., medical insurance and a guaranteed job at world class country clubs.
