Nevada's unemployment rate is still well above the national average, hovering around 13%, but there is some good news on the horizon. A major debt collection company, CFS II is looking to create thousands of jobs in Nevada.

"The unemployment rate is high, which creates a pool for us because it's important when you create a new company to have a large workforce," says CEO and Founder of CFS II Bill Bartmann.

Bartmann says they will hire about 500 people initially. Then within three years, he said they hope to grow by about 2,000 employees. He said they are currently looking at some property in Las Vegas. Bartmann said they are offering good paying jobs with great health and insurance benefits.

"These are not hamburger flipping jobs or car wash jobs," Bartmann says, "They're jobs people can make anywhere up to $90,000 a year doing one thing, being nice to people."

Bartmann said they plan to move to Nevada by March and open business by summer.
