IMAGINE this: Before a job interview, you wait five hours in a room with your competition, but instead of business attire, you’re in bikinis and swimsuits, and prep with self-tanning lotion rather than hypothetical interview questions. When your turn comes to stand before the hiring panel, they ask you to walk, turn around, strike a pose for the camera. If you’re lucky, they might also ask about your past work experience. In the span of one minute, your interview is over. Exit stage right.

The version of Las Vegas that pop culture broadcasts to the world is, for the most part, confined to a narrow slice of the city, a couple of miles of Las Vegas Boulevard known as the Strip. Sometimes the view stretches to include downtown Las Vegas, home to the oldest casinos. This doesn’t reflect what it’s like to live here – we have schools, and grocery stores, and jobs, and we don’t all live in hotels. Both versions of the city are real and inseparable. The reality supports the image, and vice versa.
