Kelly Schulz with New Orleans & Company is of the opinion that they want people looking for a job in the New Orleans area to know that businesses are hiring once again.
“Right now, the hospitality industry is looking for good employees at all levels,” said Schulz.
The tourism bureau organized a job fair of late, where more than 100 employers highlighted their openings with more plans for the future.
Schulz said, “So you can imagine if you’re a hotel that’s getting 80 percent occupancy this weekend, but you’re only staffed up for maybe 30 percent, what you’ve seen over the past year, you could see where that would pose a problem for the hotel and for the guest.”
Schulz said that New Orleans is unique with regard to bartending or serving which can often turn to be lucrative, with plenty of management, director and executive positions available. Now is the right time to apply for these positions.
“You know the cool bartender that they met, or the musician or the artist or all of the amazing personalities in New Orleans, that’s what people remember and that’s why they want to come back to us,” she said.
