Was a great opportunity.
Thats going to be the exception though just because it is that competitive, plus we have to remember how many came out here to apply to City Center then got hired only to be laid off or have hours cut by 1/2 right after opening. Same thing happened at M.

Thanks guys for all your feedback, its much appreciated! I have my fingers crossed for Vegas! Its a great place, I love it there! If anything I can just enjoy a holiday there and look for somewhere else in the US where I can secure a decent job.

There are jobs here if you are willing to do ANYTHING and work like crazy for very little money.

What you can't find is a full time job with decent pay and benefits.

Yes, there are always exceptions but generally that's just where we are right now.

All I hear on these forums (including the San Diego one which is where I am also thinking of going) is there's no work . I kind of find this impossible to really believe, it seems like everyone is literally SO negative about it. Like the whole of the Vegas population are scrambling around looking for work.
So is this the truth? I have a strong finance background and hoping to maybe work for a bank while I figure out where in the US I want to live. Vegas being a starting point because of my dad and rent is cheap but I would like to work while deciding my path.
Do you think things will improve by June 2011 (moving date) and are they already improving? Basically is there any hope!!!?

Any feedback is much appreciated.
Thanks
Here is the latest report from the Brookings Mountain West on the future of job growth in Las Vegas and the surrounding area's as well an update on what is happening with housing prices.

Report: Jobs won’t return to pre-recession levels for 7 years

The Mountain West region, which includes Nevada, is on pace to wait another seven years before job levels return to those before the recession, according to a report released by Brookings Mountain West.

If you are willing to work like mad for next to nothing then yes there are jobs. All I could get when I got here was a job that gives me almost $3 an hour less, and 1/2 the hours I had when I lived in Orlando.

Im considering going back home
