Las Vegas CBS KXNT – High School students got a chance on Monday to peek inside local businesses, as part of National Job Shadow Day. Nevada’s Job Shadow Day was devoted to eight business sectors designated by Governor Brian Sandoval as vital to the state’s economic future.
At the Bellagio Hotel Casino, 15 students from Desert Rose High School learned what it takes to work in the hospitality industry. They first received brief introductions to the field from the food and beverage manager, from sales and marketing, the chief concierge, even the horticulturists who tend the flowers in the Bellagio’s famous conservatory.
Then they toured the property for a behind-the-scenes look at the operation.
Student La Star Reynolds is a senior at Desert Rose High School who wants to work in the industry. She told KXNT on Monday that she got insight she was hoping for on Job Shadow day.
There were job shadow sessions at companies across Las Vegas, in key fields like health care and high tech. Even Creech Air Force Base opened its gates.
