Why Work Here?

City of Positive Change and Growth!

Atlantic City is a resilient city that has been reinvented many times since it was founded nearly 150 years ago. Once the tourist and resort destination of the northeast, it gained renewed interest and opportunity when Casino gaming arrived in 1978. Although the Great Recession and its aftermath hit Atlantic City hard, the arrival of new business, the opening of a new Stockton University campus, the expansion of the AtlantiCare medical center campus, the first new market rate housing development in decades, and a commitment to a diversified economy, coupled with the reopening of two shuttered casinos makes this a moment of great hope. Covering 48 blocks, Atlantic City is home to 40,000 permanent residents and entertains 30 million visitors per year. The City of Atlantic City is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
