The job fair comes exactly two years after the Las Vegas Strip the entire state of Nevada shut down because of the pandemic.

The Strip was empty and tens of thousands of people lost their jobs.

Everything from schools to hotels, to non-essential businesses, were forced to close their doors with no word on when they’d be able to reopen.

The local economy came to a halt and to this day, we are still hearing of businesses and people that are trying to get back on their feet.

Recruiters say jobs are open and the push to increase salary is top of mind.

"An increase in wages from most employers. People are looking for livable wages right now. gone are the days of trying to survive on minimum wage. People have families,” said Marchele Sneed, a business service manager for JobConnect.
