  A job fair for the Miami Valley Gaming “Racino” brought dozens of people to Sinclair College Wednesday. The $175 million project in Warren County is hiring up to 600 people in anticipation of opening by the end of the year. Available jobs at the new gaming center include service, hospitality, security and IT, and people came from around the Dayton area for the chance to meet recruiters face-to-face.

But it’s unclear what the chances are for those vying for those jobs: hundreds have already shown up to previous job fairs. Miami Valley Gaming will hold three more big job fairs just this month, and another racino project, in north Dayton, plans to start hiring for 1,000 positions in 2014.
