Resurgence on the boardwalk

A new day for Atlantic City, New Jersey appears to be in clear sight. After a few difficult years for the town that was once known as "America's Playground", there are many things to get excited about in town. The former Taj Mahal will now be relaunched as the completely overhauled music-themed Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. A short walk down the boardwalk from the Hard Rock sits the once promising resort formerly known as Revel and later TEN Atlantic City, which closed in 2014. It has been reported that the shuttered resort has been sold and plans to be reopened as Ocean Casino Resort later this year, according to The Press of Atlantic City.

This is tremendous on a number of levels. Most importantly for job seekers, there will be a number of new opportunities for employment. With two “new” entrants in Ocean and Hard Rock joining the roster of Atlantic City’s entertainment and hotel venues, one can only hope that this will lead to a rise of big name entertainment acts and major sporting events to once again consider Atlantic City as their host. Outside of major concert performers from Frank Sinatra to the The Beach Boys to Beyonce, AC was a name for itself a a big player in the boxing industry hosting some of the biggest fights in history, featuring fighters like Mike Tyson, George Foreman and Bernard Hopkins. Perhaps the World Champions of today like Vasyl Lomachenko or Deontay Wilder may be interested in adding their names to that list of legendary Atlantic City fighters.

Whether its professional boxing, new restaurants, or Hard Rock Hotel and Casino concerts, there are many reasons to get excited for what is in store for AC over the next few years.
