|Despite bleak job prospects now for US business students many are catching on to the lure of online gambling. That is the industry itself. Whilst companies looking for new blood would normally lap up business graduates, they’re being left out in the cold in the current harsh economic climate. This potentially gives the I-gaming industry an unusual opportunity to flourish.|
After countless unsuccessful interviews some enterprising young people have launched their own Web sites that funnel people to online gambling locations. For their part they get a cut in the share of the gambling sites profits.
One such entrepreneur is Nate Clark: 'The more frustrated I got interviewing for jobs in a down economy, the better of an idea this looked like. That's what being young is all about. It's taking risks. And I'm not taking that much risk.'
They invested about $1,000, far less than the costs of famous dot-com flameouts. They generated 'less than $100' in casinosage.com's first week. Some of that was money Clark himself lost at one of the online casinos.
Clark expects to keep the business running through the summer before they decide whether and how to pursue it. “I'm not in a hurry to sell my soul to some company on Wall Street when this could be more fun and interesting.'
