Ok. So I moved to North Las Vegas a few months ago from California. I'm a college student looking for work in just about any area of business I can think of. Car washes, fast food, grocery stores, etc. I haven't had any luck. I've had plenty of interviews, but no real call backs. I don't really know that many people. If there are any locals in the area that might have any tips, advice, or location ideas I would appreciate any information DEEPLY.

Thank you for any help.

Keep trying, don't give up. That's about all you can do imo

Grocery stores are usually always looking for night stockers, maybe focus on them for a while

How old are you? How good looking are you (while you sound male, it doesn't matter either way.)?

Most security companies are hiring. Go to indeed.com and look under security. If you're clean cut, can pass a drug and background check, you'll get hired. Try AlliedUniversal or Marksman Security.

If you are willing to work hard you might try a Labor Ready. If you go there looking clean cut you will have a leg up on most of the applicants there. You will need to find out what time of day they start to line up and be there early. Be sure to bring pen and paper and find out if you need to fill out any paperwork or bring any documents in advance. Who knows you might be sent to a job that wants to hire you but realistically probably not.

I would recommend you look at jobs others might not consider. For example, there are many evictions in the area. Find out who hires the crews to do the evictions and try to get on with them. Go to some of the tile and carpet stores and see if they need help. If you are strong contact some of the furniture moving places and/or local small companies that haul stuff for people.

Contact places like Servicemaster that clean up messes that no one else wants to clean up. Contact some of portable toilet companies and also Septic repair companies. The less desirable the job the more chance you might be able to find one. You need to look presentable, clean clothes, shaved, hair cut. By doing this you can stand out from the crowd.

Are you good at painting? If so check out some of the paint stores see if some of the subcontractors coming in there need help. Most businesses have bulletin boards that subcontractors pin their cards grab some and start calling. The best way though would be for them to see you in person.

The key thing that you need to do is actually be reliable. Be the person that actually shows up every day on time and does what you are told.

I'm sure there will be people on this board that will scoff at my suggestions but anything is worth a try.

What are you doing in the hours you aren't looking for a job? Who do you spend time with? Do they know you are looking for a job? What do you want to do? Do they know anyone in the industry?

Smiths stores always seem to be hiring. Check them out. You can apply in store or online.

For a temp position go to www.aerotek.com You can also take a look at working conventions. That's Eastridge staffing. Labor Ready/People Ready is for emergency hopeful money. Get a guard card and health card and you can find work.

Good luck.
