Gaming Occupations

Exploring This Job

Because casino gambling and employment is generally restricted to people who are at least 18 or 21 years old, it is very difficult for high school students to get firsthand experience in this field. Most casino jobs for a high school student will be limited to those in gift shops and eateries. However, part-time and summer jobs in restaurants, hotels, amusement parks, and other areas of the hospitality and entertainment industries will give you a feel for working with the public. Cashier jobs are also good ways to gain experience in handling money. Participating in school fairs, carnivals, state fairs, and other places where skill-type games are played may also offer insight into the gaming industry.
