Casino Resume Writing How To

Working for a casino is a very exciting experience. You get to meet all types of people, you get to work with all types of cool people, and it's really thrilling when one of the customers wins a huge jackpot. There are plenty of job openings at casinos all the time, because there's so much to do. You can get paid very well working for a casino, no matter what you. But before you can get a job at a casino, you need to prepare a well written casino resume.

What Do You Want To Do?

There are so many jobs at a casino, that there's pretty much something for everyone. There are security jobs, dealer jobs, bartending and serving jobs, janitorial jobs, and much, much more. If you want to be considered for a position, you should be specific about what you want to do. The position you desire should have something to do with your previous employment experience and/or education. That way, you will stand out amongst others vying for the same position. Put what you want to do in the form of an objective at the top of the resume so that employers know right away what type of job you're looking for.


Next, you'll want to list your experience. If you've never worked in a casino, but have experience at something that would be useful at the casino (serving food, for instance), list those positions. List the companies you worked for, the dates, your position, as well as any pertinent job duties that an employer would find desirable when working for a casino.


Next, list your skills. You might list bartending, card dealing, working security, or anything else you're good at. Don't list anything that won't help you with the job you're applying for. For instance, if the job is for a security position, don't list things like money counting or card dealing; as they won't help you when doing a security officer's job.


If you have graduated from college, or trade school, or you've been trained in card dealing, bartending, or some other form of education that would be appropriate for the position, list it. If you don't have any education, it's best to just leave this part blank and focus on your skill sets and experience. That's all it takes to make a great looking resume for a casino job. Just make sure you include a cover letter that shows your personality, your attention to detail, and that describes just how badly you want whatever job you're applying for.
