In today’s episode of Workplace Story, we’ll meet two millennial generation women who have worked at popular nightlife venues. A Nevada casino VIP host talks about the glamorous facade of trendy nightspots, and gives us a behind-the-scenes look. A go-go dancer who worked in Arizona shares what it feels like to wear a neon costume and be in character as part of the club’s ambiance.
Employment advice for others in these jobs and careers:
Becky’s advice to others who’d like to work in a nightlife venue is to be firm in your goals, whether the job is a temporary one or a career, and not to get distracted by the substantial pay. She said that careers may also be briefer in this appearance-driven industry, because many of the clubs want to hire younger people. Erin doesn’t regret the experience of working as a go-go dancer. She said it helped her realize that developing the inner person is more important than perfecting her outside appearance, and added that sometimes it takes a gentle push to help a person realize what they really want.
