College in West Virginia helps fill in casino vacancies 27.07.2011

Roulette News

A couple of years ago when West Virginia passed a referendum allowing the then named Charles Town Races and Slots start offering casino games such as roulette and blackjack, new job opportunities were created but sadly there was no one around to fill the void.

The residents in nearby cities and towns were not skilled in the kind of jobs that the newly formed casino, renamed Hollywood Casino, was offering and the casino had to recruit employees from remote areas to get the casino operational.

The nearby Blue Ridge Community and Technical College saw an opportunity to offer future students with courses that will train them as casino employees.

This will enable Hollywood Casino to fill in job vacancies with local folks which in turn will keep the casino money in the local area and help lower unemployment levels, while providing the college with ample funding via tuition fees.

The college initiative proved so successful that now there is a waiting list of potential candidates for the next academic year. The college co-operates with the casino and dealer training for roulette, poker and blackjack games is done in the casino itself.

The college even offers a Master Chef program and graduates of the program fill in positions in the casino kitchen, but the core of graduating college students become professional dealers and earn up to $28 an hour.
