I am considering a relocation to Reno at the end of 2012. I am interested in working at a resort or really anything related to tourism. I have a bachelor's degree I hospitality leisure management, with one year of experience working at Walt Disney World and Monterey County Parks. My question is how healthy is the job in this industry, is it hard to get a job with no networking? I am not specifically looking for a management position, anything in the industry will do. I see jobs posted online but are those jobs actually looking to be filled by external candidates?

I also have 7 years retail merchandising, supervisor experience.

Thank you on any input you can provide on this matter, ashley

this winter we have had little snow and a lot of people were laid off in Tahoe. NV in gen is the worst place to find a job at the moment with the highest unemployment rate.

Silver legacy is about to go bankrupt and we are down to two gift shops where once there were over 10 in the down town reno strip.

I dont know why you would want to work here, i would look into Vail, Aspen or another local with high volume tourists year round and better job market

+1 on Superchic.

But, also consider what the casino scene in Reno is; it's a poor man's LV. Lets be honest.

Also, consider that if you do manage a job it will be the lowest common denominator paying barely above minimum wage.

I'd explore other options.
