Nevada 2012 - 2022, a Business Oasis

Updated on May 31, 2015

Western Business and Luxury Spot

Nevada is an ideal spot in the American West for a lucrative and luxurious Dream Career and a variety of jobs that pay well.

The State of Nevada is a hub for the Resort-Gaming, Hospitality, and an Entertainment Industry that caters to individuals, families, and business people from around the world. As such, it is a leading convention and vacation mecca, with a growing retirement community.

Oasis In the West

In singer and actor Dean Martin's last years, he talked often and fondly of his days as a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas. it seemed the most precious part of his personal history. The Greater Las Vegas Area is that in which most of Nevada's largest employers are located today. Suburbs of Vegas in Clark County are growing quickly and are becoming the fastest growing spots in the state.

I enjoy Nevada for it's climate and history, as well as for its tourist attractions and grand hotel-casinos. People are extremely friendly and customer service is a priority everywhere, Attending conferences in Las Vegas has always been a lot of fun and I have met personalities at writer's and poets conventions in Vegas, like Milton Berle, Red Skelton, and Senator Eugene McCarthy. In addition, the desert is beautiful and I have used Nevada desert videos for relaxation training for several clients.

One August day during a poetry convention I attended in Las Vegas, the temperature reached nearly 110 degrees. That evening when I left the hotel to do some sightseeing, I was surprised that it was still 98 degrees at 9:00 pm, especially since up in the hotel room, the Nevada winds outside had created the sounds of winter winds to my ears!

The fastest growing jobs in Nevada are in the industries of

  1. Information technology (IT),
  2. Healthcare, Education, and
  3. Entertainment, with additional top jobs in
  4. Collections,
  5. Social and Human Services,
  6. Translation and Interpreters and the
  7. Clergy of various faiths rounding out the Top 20 List.
