I live in Connecticut and I am pursuing my 2nd degree (in Communications).

My goal is to use that degree to work behind the scenes at a show in Vegas.

Will the casinos conduct a job interview over Skype or the phone ?


I would fly to Vegas if I were to get called in for an interview. But, I would
rather conduct the interview over Skype or the phone.

Do NOT expect a casino HR department to go one iota out of their way to accommodate you, unless you have some hard to find skill they desperately need.

In point of fact, they vastly prefer to hire established locals. So the chance of even getting an interview from out of town is fairly slim.

Additionally, the shows are not owned by the casinos, so it would be fruitless to interview with the casino for a job at one of the shows.

Like the saying - Whatever happens in Vegas. Stays in Vegas, employment is the same way, Whatever jobs are in Vegas, are recruited in Vegas.....

I applied to a job working for Caesars corporate about 18 months ago. I had 3 phone interviews (HR, manager, and her manager) before they decided to fly me out for in person interviews. I didn't get the position in the end but they did spend time and money to consider me for the position. It was a mid-level position and I wouldn't have expected the same for something entry level

If I was a potential employer, I would want to SEE the person I'm about to PAY to do a job...IN PERSON!

I have hired remotely, and have been hired remotely. But there was ALWAYS at least one person-to-person meeting.

In my current sales role, I make it a point to fly to a client's location when they are considering hiring my company to provide service. I have obtained many jobs this way, as that differentiates me from all of the other companies who may offer similar service, but just email their bids to the client. In some instances, although my proposal was higher than others, I was hired because I made the effort to show I at least cared enough about getting the contract.

Just some things to keep in mind. With a talent pool of considerable size and scope, do what differentiates you from others. And certainly don't do less than the other applicants who are local.

Oh, come on. Everyone knows if you're too dumb ta figure out how ta Skype you're not gonna be any good as an employee. Right?

It's a test for only the Bill-Gates-y-est types to pass. If you can Skype, well then...I think we can probably make some pretty rock and roll together, bro.
