I am moving to Las Vegas in March, what kind of jobs are available besides food and bar service?

I will be 23, moving with a few friends. I have a background in food service and customer service and a year of salaried restaurant management.

Yes, there are many job openings right now in Las Vegas. My friend also went there and he also had the same background just like yours. But he managed a good job in LV in a shopping mall as a floor manager for the food and beverage section. He draws a good amount of salary out there and when he called me up few days... More
