Ohio's first casino has posted 750 additional jobs, including cashiers, bartenders, buffet supervisors and chefs.
Horseshoe Casino Cleveland posted the non-gaming jobs on its website Monday, offering $13 hourly pay for baker positions and $12 hourly for security jobs.
The casino, which opens in March, hopes to hire nearly 1,600 people in all.
The jobs fall in numerous categories, including administrative support, guest services, marketing and finance.
"There aren't many careers where you can see fortunes won, dreams realized and legends born every single day," the online posting says.
Online postings will be removed when sufficient applicants have been screened and scheduled for interviews.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old, have a high school diploma or equivalent and submit to drug testing and a criminal background check.
Last week, the casino began 12 weeks of training for 600 prospective dealers selected in the first hiring round from among nearly 12,000 applicants.
Creating jobs was a major selling point in getting casinos approved in Ohio. Of Ohio's four casino cities, only Columbus had an October jobless rate under Ohio's 8.4 percent.
The rate in Columbus was 7.8 percent. Cleveland had a 9.1 percent jobless rate, Cincinnati 9.2 percent and Toledo 10.1 percent.
The Cleveland casino is a joint venture between Caesars Entertainment and the Rock Gaming company led by Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. It will be located initially in a renovated department store in the heart of downtown Cleveland and eventually in a newly built riverside casino behind the city's iconic Terminal Tower skyscraper.
Rock Ohio Caesars also will operate the casino in Cincinnati. Penn National Gaming will operate the casinos in Columbus and Toledo.
Though not expected to open until the second half of 2012, Hollywood Casino Columbus also posted openings on its website Monday -- for a small number of executive positions, including director of slot operations, director of table games and vice president of human resources. The possible salaries were not given.
With the latest Cleveland job postings, Cuyahoga Community College will offer another round of resume-writing and job-interview skill workshops for casino applicants through the end of December.
