Las Vegas, Nev.

< BACK to CDI TOOL
Heading to school in Las Vegas may resemble a long night at the casino -- high entertainment value and poor economic conditions. It should come as no surprise that the City of Sin ranks first in both arts and entertainment on and off the Strip, and for bars and restaurants, as it is an international tourist destination. However, with the lowest levels of employment in the innovation economy and the relatively high rent and youth unemployment, finding a job after graduation may be a roll of the dice.
