Free Hospitality Job Listings:

As Walton County prepares for the upcoming summer season, the Walton County TDC wants to help support our partners who are looking to add to their teams. We've created a job listings page on our website to share openings and opportunities. 

If you’re currently hiring staff in the hospitality industry, we’d love to help you promote available positions. For those looking for a job in the hospitality industry, we hope this is a great resource for you!

To list available positions on this page, please contact Industry Relations Specialist Lisa Foster at or call (850) 267-1216. Businesses must be located within Walton County and in the hospitality industry to be included.


Media Hot Leads Program:

We've launched a MEDIA HOT LEADS PROGRAM, designed to share media requests for your input directly and in real-time. Our PR agency, TURNER, will be sharing media requests with you through this dedicated email program, and you will be able to directly submit your information for media consideration.  Please note, submitting your information is not a guarantee that you will be included in editorial coverage but ensures you are considered for inclusion.   

Each email will detail the media request, as well as any special requirements from the journalist. Some of the leads might not be relevant to all our tourism partners, but the program will enable you to more easily share your news when relevant and could potentially result in additional media coverage. Please feel free to have any of your team, or PR agency partners, sign up to receive the media leads to ensure your ability to respond.

Here are a few past leads to give you an example of the type that will be shared with you through this program:

If you are interested, please sign up to receive this email communication here. You are able to opt-out at any time. 

We’re looking forward to utilizing this new and streamlined process to ensure we can share all of South Walton’s stories with the press. If you have questions about the program, please contact Patti Blake, PR & design specialist, at
