How do I know when I’m ready for Las Vegas?
The Nevada Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) says its job opening deadline is Sept. 7, but some Nevada vacationers might still be looking to go to Las Vegas on a whim.
The agency said it’s working to update job openings and job postings for the Las Vegas area, and that it’s open to applications from anyone who has never been to the city.
NTDC spokeswoman Jennifer A. Miller said the agency has made a few adjustments in job postings.
“As we continue to update our job posting, we have been working to ensure that we are providing a level of job availability that reflects the number of applicants for each position,” Miller said in an email.
Miller added that Nevada tourism has been seeing an uptick in the number and quality of job openings in recent weeks, but added that there are still many openings for those who would like to travel to Las Vegans destination.
A total of 2,814 job openings are listed for tourism and hospitality professionals at NTDC offices across the state, according to Miller.
More than 1,100 of those jobs are listed as non-traditional positions, including administrative assistants, food service workers, food preparation workers, and bartenders.
We’re looking for those people who are ready to start their own business or have experience in a hospitality or tourism business,” Miller wrote.
People who want to apply should fill out an online application at the NTDC website.
You can apply for any of the jobs listed in the job listing, or you can apply directly to an NTDC office in Las Vegas.
The agency also posted jobs on its website for restaurant and bar managers, waiters and waitresses, bartenders and cocktail servers, and restaurant service employees.
Those jobs are open for up to two years.
Last year, Nevada lawmakers passed a bill that opened up about $300 million in incentives to attract tourism to Las Vegas.
At the time, the state Tourism Development Council estimated that tourism to the state could generate $300.5 million for the state in 2019, according the Las Veres Times.
