Las Vegas Employment Booming

Synonymous with gambling and a glamorous night life, Las Vegas is well known for its tourism industry and for being an entertainment mecca of the world. But Las Vegas has much more to offer than entertainment and gaming.

As a major center of financial, business, and services, the city has effectively parlayed the entertainment capital into a mega city for job-seekers. An extremely diversified economy offers Las Vegas jobs in many areas of business and the benefits of living in one of the most exciting cities in the world is a great "plus."

Entertainment and tourism are obviously critical to the city's economy, brining more than 37 million people annually to visit the city. Visitor's spend billions of dollars annually and over 20 percent of jobs in the Las Vegas area are gaming related. This offers opportunities in casinos, show places, public transportation, hotels, restaurants, and other places where tourists frequent.

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Las Vegas was not spared the decline in tourism that many other larger cities experienced. The city saw much of their local economy suffer as a result of decreased tourism and fewer visitors to the city. Coupled with the issues plaguing the city around attracting visitors to other areas of the city in addition to casinos, Las Vegas searched for the answer to even more economic and job growth.

And they succeeded!

Thanks to the leadership and vision for the future of this great city, jobs have increased significantly in the past few years. New commercial and residential developments began to materialize in the mid-2000’s and this created a need for more employees in construction, engineering, and interior design. The completion of some of the new development and expansion of city tourist attractions successfully drove increased population growth.

The growing population has created new demands for construction in the residential, commercial, office, and industrial areas of the city. An ongoing demand for highly skilled construction workers continues to be a need in this economically booming city.

An increase in population growth requires more jobs in the areas of service industries and financial sectors. More people also mean a need for more schools and child-care facilities. There is a high demand for employees in the educational system, including teachers, guidance counselors, administration, and maintenance personnel.

Las Vegas, Nevada has experienced phenomenal population and job growth over the past twenty years and the outlook continues to be promising. With Nevada's low taxes, it makes the city an attractive place to live with lower costs of living.

The gaming and tourism industry will continue to fuel the economy with the influx of tourists and visitors to this great city; but the financial, construction, service, and educational sectors also continue to grow. The future outlook for growth and high demand for individuals in these jobs creates a wealth of opportunities for thousands of job-seekers.

Las Vegas is a great place to live, work, and play. And remember, what happens in Vegas, continues to drive the need for even more jobs!
