Finding Casino Jobs - Las Vegas Casino Employment Tips

May 31, 2008
Conducting a casino job search is very similar to conducting any other type of job search. The first thing you need to do is determine what kind of work you are looking for and where you would like to work.

Many casinos are located in Las Vegas or Atlantic City, but these are not the only places where you can find casino work. If you have the freedom to relocate to take a casino job, this means that you can consider more opportunities, but you may be able to find work at a location near you, too.

Once you have an idea of what type of work you are interested in and where you would like to work, you need to make sure your resume is up to date. Even if you have spent some time on it recently, take another look to see where you can make a point of mentioning any hospitality or customer service experience you have.

Casinos are looking for staff members who are interested in providing exemplary customer service, and who are comfortable interacting with guests from many types of backgrounds. No two days working at a casino will be the same, and it takes a certain kind of person to be as polite at the end of a shift as when they arrived for work.

The Internet can be a wonderful tool for job seekers. If there is a specific casino you are interested in, you can surf over to that company's web site to see available positions. You will either be asked to submit an online form or to apply by e-mail.

Do make a point of applying for a job in the way the prospective employer specifies. Being able to follow instructions is an important part of working in a casino and failure to do so may mean that your application will not be considered.

Another option when looking for casino work online is to check one of the major job boards, such as Monster. To get an idea of what positions are available, simply type the word "casino" into the search box and press "Enter." You also have the option of searching for a specific job title using the word "casino" as a keyword. These sites will also let you narrow your search to a certain location so you are not seeing search results outside of your target area.

An employment agency may be able to help you find work at a casino as well. Since the agency screens applicants before sending them on to an interview with the employer, you may find it easier to get hired by using this method. Consider working for a casino through an agency on a temporary basis; this gives you the chance to show the casino management what you can do, and it also gives you the opportunity to decide whether that is the right working environment for you.

When it comes to looking for work, at a casino or in any other industry, don't discount the value of good, old-fashioned networking. Tell everyone you know that you are interested in getting a job at a casino and what kind of work you are looking for. If anyone gives you a tip about somewhere you should be looking, make a point of following up on it quickly. If you wait too long, you may find the position you are interested in is already filled.

There are many ways to search for work in a casino. Why don't you try a combination of techniques to increase your chances of being hired?
