Learn more about the key industries, job opportunities, and lifestyle features in the Reno-Sparks-Tahoe region. The Work section breaks out companies by industry and provides links to open job positions. Seekers are encouraged to submit their resume on the WorkLivePlay website and apply to jobs directly. Submitting your resume online will get you connected to a community liaison who can help follow up on applications.

2. Register and engage with the American Jobs Center

The Reno Job Connect office, aka the American Jobs Center, located in Reno Town Mall is Reno’s one-stop center for employment resources. After helping to register job seekers on EmployNV, staff will help seekers access additional resources if there are barriers to employment and the seeker qualifies for available programs.

3. Post your resume and search Job Boards

  • Job search websites vary depending on how easy they are to navigate, different add-on options, cost, and job alert variables. This Consumers Advocate list provides research and information on a number of popular job board sites including Indeed,, and Glassdoor.
