Reno Jobs: Overview
Because of their similarities, Reno is often compared to Las Vegas. But Reno is a gem of its own. Along with some of the Las Vegas glitter of casinos and entertainment, Reno also has many cultural and recreational features that entice people to relocate here for Reno jobs. Its nickname, "The Biggest Little City in the World," is attributed in part to the cultural heart of the city, the University of Nevada in Reno. Reno boasts a milder climate than Vegas, so you can enjoy outdoor adventures, hiking, and biking in the foothills of nearby jewel Lake Tahoe. Reno is also way less crowded than Vegas, getting only 4 million visits per year versus Vegas's 40 million.
Although unproven, rumor is that diamond rings litter the bottom of Reno's Truckee River from the 30,000 couples who untied the knot during a period of very lax divorce laws in the 1930s. Rivets became a gold mine for Reno tailor Jacob Davis when he discovered that the little copper disks made laborers' pants sturdier. He partnered with fabric wholesaler Levi Strauss to buy denim, and the blue jean business was born. If you're looking to strike it rich in your hunt for Reno jobs, you might also take a look at the nearby cities of Sparks, Carson City, and Henderson.
