I've been playing card games my whole life - Blackjack, Poker, Setback, Cribbage, I love shuffling the deck and playing games of chance. Therefore I love casino gaming, and I've always wanted to work as a dealer. Trouble is I've never lived close enough to a casino to commute. If you live anywhere near Foxwoods Resort Casino, and love the action, they're accepting applications for their Blackjack dealer school.

If you've got your high school diploma or GED, the Blackjack/Novelty Games Dealer School at Foxwoods is awaiting your application. You're going to have to put in some time and work before you are considered, it's a ten week course that consists of a 3.5 hour class, four days a week. Under the direction of a Floor Supervisor, you'll learn the skills needed in order to stand in front of anyone from a multi-millionaire, to the average Joe, and make them scream with the flip of a card.

As you can imagine, this job is not for everyone. The job description for the part time position suggests that your interpersonal and communications skills be sharp, you must be quick and accurate with mathematical computations, you must be able to sit and stand for long periods of time, and be available to work any shift, including weekends and holidays.

The Blackjack/Novelty Game school at Foxwoods is slated to run Monday - Thursday from 9AM to 12:30PM, 1PM to 4:30PM, and 6PM to 9:30PM, from April 17-June 23, 2023. For more information, click HERE.
