Careers in the Gaming Industry

Institute for Career Research

CHOOSING A CAREER IS NOT A GAME. Except when it is. Casino gaming has exploded in the United States over the past few decades, creating thousands of new jobs for dedicated careerists who would like to take a sure bet on an exciting career. Nearly 200,000 people are employed in gaming today, and you could become one of them. Historically a niche business legal in only a few places, the gaming industry now has outposts across the country ranging from bars in South Dakota with a few slot machines to the over-the-top mega-casinos of the Las Vegas Strip. The gaming industry has grown rapidly, fed by demand for safe and legal gaming, and by the state and local governments that regulate casinos and depend upon the tax revenue they generate. Jobs specifically devoted to gaming include dealers and gaming supervisors who run the games and gaming floors where patrons partake of games. The business has also created demand for legions of careerists in associated hospitality fields, especially restaurants, hotels, security and live music and theater. Although this report will touch upon opportunities in these related industries, it will concentrate on those careers specifically related to gaming.
