Are you a job seeker in Las Vegas? Then you probably know the labor market is still very competitive right now. While we’re not out of the woods yet, according to a new report from the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation, the Nevada job market is starting to show some modest improvement over the same time last year (DETR). Perhaps even more interesting, the largest job gains were shown in industries that staff TAM® Card holders and other service professionals. The leisure and hospitality industry had 262,600 workers in January, 10,500 more than the same month a year ago. Food service and drinking establishments added 5,400 jobs while casino hotels and gaming establishments grew by 4,700 (8 News Now).
