My daughter will be finishing her internship in Upper Michigan as a Rad Tech and is looking everywhere for a job. I was looking on employment sites and noticed there were quite a few Rad tech jobs open in Las Vegas. My daughter is 21 and we are from a very small town. She says she will go wherever she can to find a job. Is Las Vegas a safe place for her to look for a job? What part of Vegas would anyone recommend looking for an apartment in? Any information would be helpful.

Las Vegas metro area is huge. Even at non rush hour times, I would guess it is a 30 minute drive from extreme end of the valley to the other extreme end. There are pockets of nice in just about every portion. And some areas have large areas of nice.

I think it might serve you to do a couple things....find out the addresses of where the jobs are....and maybe contact the HR people at those companies and find out if they are willing to hire a person who will relocate.

FWIW, the largest nice areas are Henderson and Summerlin, but you are not limited to those areas.

There are things peculiar to Las Vegas she might need to get used to...avoiding gambling being a big factor.
