More than 1,500 people over the past two days went to a job fair at the Fremont hotel-casino, hoping to get either seasonal or permanent work in time for the holidays.
Companies like Caesars, Nike, and others were hoping fill jobs -- everything from servers to hosts.
The fair drew many who said all they wanted for the holidays was a job.
"I want to support my family, my brothers, my grandma especially," says Octavio Garcia Gutierrez.
He says right now, he's unemployed and says his disability also makes finding work a challenge.
Gutierrez, along with Steven Baca, went the fair along with their job coach, Tia Campbell. Campbell says although it's a competitive market right now, there are still a lot of jobs to be had in Las Vegas.
"You kind of have to dig for them, but they're out there," she says.
Campbell says especially during the holidays, there's a lot of seasonal work including at the casinos.
Baca says he's hoping to find a fitness job, and Garcia wants something involving cooking.
"If I wanted to get a Christmas gift, it would be a job," Baca says.
