With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans!

September 1, 2008

I’ve had some LiLV listeners ask me about my session at the 2008 New Media Expo, which took place a couple weeks ago.  It went very well–received a lot of nice comments after the session and came home to a large number of email “thanks” as well.  I thought I’d share a bit of a video that was taken during the session with those LiLV listeners who are into such things (and are reading this on our website).  Below is a video clip of the first few minutes of the session. . .(do you guys recognize that music in the beginning?)

59: Tips on Finding a Job in Las Vegas: From a Senior Recruiter’s Perspective

August 12, 2008

Since moving to Las Vegas in August of 2005, we’ve seen unemployment as low as 3.8%.  But more recently, we’re looking at an unemployment rate of 6.7% here in the Las Vegas Valley.  From where we sit, that’s too damn high (and above the national average).  So, for today’s Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we offer some very specific tips on finding a job in Las Vegas (and beyond).  Show notes:

  • Weather/Pool Report: Hot and Dry, like my love and humor
  • JetBlue?  More like JetBlows.
  • Discovering Las Vegas with my Magellan 1412
  • Listener Meet Up on August 15 at 5PM at Trader Vic’s.  More InfoDrink Recommendation.
  • Check out the 2008 New Media Expo in Las Vegas (August 14-16)!
  • Construction on 215
  • Listener Audio: Show thoughts, baking cakes, and jewelry shows
  • Listener Email: Moving to Vegas, taking back her title, killing deer, garage doors, show suggestions
  • More LiLV Friends added!
  • Tip’s on Finding a Job in Las Vegas
    • Resumes
    • Networking
    • Job Boards (National and Local)
    • Interview (telephone, preparation for onsite, interview tips, follow up)

Okay, here’s the scoop.  Many of the folks who emailed us at meetup@livinginlv.com suggested our gathering should take place at the Whitney Villa.  I think this is a great idea(!). . .and we were moving toward making that happen when we got word that some of our guest’s ankle monitors would not let them travel to our neck of the woods.

Maybe next time, Troy.  (I keed, I keed.)

Anywho, the day with the most votes turned out to be Friday, August 15th.  This works well–it gives us a chance to meet but doesn’t cut into what may be the last night in Las Vegas (Saturday) for many of the folks attending the New Media Expo.  here’s the scoop:

Location: Trader Vic’s (in The Miracle Mile Shopping Center, attached to Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino)
Date: Friday, August 15
Time: 5PM
Attire: Probably a good idea

Melissa and I are looking forward to meeting y’all!  And remember, there’s a gift waiting for the first 10 people who introduce him/herself to me OR my Naughty Jelly Sweet!!

I’m telling you, our listeners are a lovely bunch of coconuts!  As I mentioned in episode 58, we were thinking about organizing an informal meet up with our listeners in conjunction with the upcoming New Media Expo.   Based upon the personal emails I received, we’d be crazy NOT to meet with some of the nicest people I’ve ever heard from!

We’ll pick a day (more like early evening) soon.  And to show my appreciation, I’ve decided that I’ve got a little gift set aside for the first ten LiLV listeners who shake my hand and introduce himself/herself.  (And no, the gift does not require that you buy me a drink. . .that would be uncalled for, not something I would ever expect, and I drink Tanqueray and Tonic.)

The Expo is happening from August 14-16.  My session is on the Thursday the 14th but I’m open to meet any day/night.  For those interested in joining us for a drink or two, how about sending an email to meetup@livinginlv.com and tell me what night works for you.  Based upon the majority, we’ll post a date/time on the website.

Stay tuned!
