Pinehurst Resort will host the "Work Where America Comes To Play" career expo from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, in the Cardinal Ballroom at the Carolina Hotel.
The career expo will provide an opportunity for potential job applicants to learn more about Pinehurst and speak with department representatives to preview available jobs and job-related benefits for the upcoming busy season.
