Whether you are looking for work, changing careers, or exploring new career options, Nevada’s One Stop System connects job seekers – youth, adults, veterans and dislocated workers – to a network of employment, training, and educational programs in Southern Nevada. By offering high-quality services, referrals, and training, the Career One Stop Center bridges the gap between employer and job seeker by connecting qualified applicants with job openings.
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) – Organizers estimate about 1,000 people showed up for the second annual Nevada Day Super Hiring Event at the One-Stop Career Center on Wednesday.
It was a chance for job seekers to meet with people from companies that are hiring in the valley.
35 employers were on hand at the event. It was free and 250 people who were pre-screened got the chance to interview with prospective employers.
Mary James is an Army veteran who is looking for full-time work. She said events like this give her hope that she will find what she’s looking for soon.
Kenadie Cobbin Richardson with One-Stop Career Center said this event gives job seekers the personal interaction they’re looking for.
A lot of times, job applications begin online and applicants never get that personal touch. She said there are hundreds of jobs available in the valley, but employers often find they can’t find the people who have the qualifications for the jobs they are trying to fill.
That’s where career centers like One-Stop come in handy. Even though this hiring event is now over, people can still stop by the career center to find out about job training and resume-building classes.
There are also job-placement services available at the center. One Stop Career Center is located at 6330 West Charleston Boulevard, Suite 190 and it’s open Monday through Friday during normal business hours.

Job seekers will sign in and submit their resume or common application at the registration desk to be reviewed for qualifications for the positions they wish to be considered for. There will be also an opportunity for job seekers to pre-register online and receive priority on the day of the event. If found qualified, candidates will be escorted to a hiring manager for an interview. Follow up interviews may be scheduled or tentative offers may be made on the spot contingent upon qualifications and completion of a background check.
