I just read that according to the folks at MGM Mirage, the company expects more the 100,000 applicants for the 12,000 positions that will be available to those of us that call (or want to call) Las Vegas our home. And if you are already an MGM Mirage employee, you have a significant inside track on two fronts:
- About half of CityCenter employees will come from other MGM Mirage properties
- MGM Mirage employees will have about a three month head start over the general public in filling those CityCenter jobs
But what I find really interesting is that while MGM Mirage plans to hire 12,000 people (which is GREAT news), about 6,000 will be placed in other MGM Mirage properties. The company plans to leverage the CityCenter opening to attract top-shelf applicants to MGM Mirage.
Want to be one of the 12,000? Here's the online application link: www.citycentercareers.com If you're not an MGM Mirage employee, you have to wait until January 5th, 2009 before you can get into the mix.
