Believe it or not, the summer hiring season on the Las Vegas Strip is now in full force.

The largest employer, MGM Resorts International, held its job fair Wednesday for all 13 of its properties with 1,000 jobs up for grabs.

"We want candidates who really want to engage, entertain, inspire our guests," said Fe Allen, MGM Resorts' director of talent acquisition. "Our guests come from all over the world so we want people who just want to have fun, people who want to give our guests the best experiences."

The available jobs range from receptionists and lifeguards to security officers and bartenders.

MGM recruiters say there are positions that start at minimum wage and go as high as about $11 per hour.

Even though the work is seasonal, it's absolutely a way for someone to get their foot in the door with the company.

Khatherine Gaines is a top recruiter with MGM today, after starting as an entry-level pool greeter six years ago and rising through the ranks.

"I've been very fortunate to have been under leaders that want to develop me and they've put me in a lot of development classes where if you're not in management yet and you want to be you can take that course," Gaines said.
