The City of Las Vegas, which is located in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort city famous for its vibrant nightlife. The busiest areas are built around 24-hour casinos and other entertainment options. The city’s main street and focal point are the Strip, which is just over 4 miles in length. This concourse is home to a number of themed hotels with elaborate displays, such as fountains synchronized to music, and replicas of an Egyptian pyramid, the Venetian Grand Canal, and the Paris Eiffel Tower.
The current population of Las Vegas is estimated at around half a million, and the city is sometimes referred to as the "ninth island of Hawaii" because so many Hawaiians have moved to the city.
Settled since 1905, the city presents itself as the entertainment capital of the world. It’s one of the top three locations in the U.S. for business conventions, and one of the world’s most frequently-visited tourist destinations.
The Las Vegas economy is driven mostly by tourism, gambling, and conventions. These, in turn, support the retail, restaurant and accommodation industries. Most of the tourist attractions are on the Strip, which initially drew people away from the downtown core. In recent years, tax relief and other projects have aimed to revitalize this area by attracting technology, healthcare, and other commercial companies. Some of the biggest players in the local economy are Zappos.com, Allegiant Air and Planet 13 Holdings, which has the world’s largest cannabis dispensary in the city.
Wherever you have lots of people, service personnel are in high demand. Healthcare, in particular, has a major role in a city where people come to play, and Las Vegas is no exception. Surgeons, dentists, and internists top the list of the 10 highest paying jobs in the region, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, family and general physicians, physician assistants and physical therapists take spots 7, 8 and 9. This means anyone working in healthcare has a very good chance of finding suitable work in Las Vegas, at almost any level.
The busy healthcare landscape in Las Vegas means that for veterans with experience in any medical field, it’s a great place to find work. If you aren’t into healthcare, however, the hospitality industry offers another desirable option. With 150,000 hotel rooms in Vegas (excluding homestays and unregistered vacation rentals), working in accommodation in any capacity can be lucrative. Both of these industries have round-the-clock operations, too, which means veterans who don’t want to deal with the public can very likely find work during quieter hours. At the lowest levels, both of these sectors need cleaners and foodservice employees as much as any other industry, too. Transportation, too, is an industry showing a surprising hiring boom at present.
