Affordable living and generous tax incentives have made Louisiana an attractive place for people to move to, and there are many new businesses that need to fill jobs. The career opportunities are endless for the right candidates, and professional recruiters have a great reserve of people to choose from. The energy sector is the largest of all, as more and more companies have located there to take advantage of the generous supply of oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
Agribusiness is booming, as is advanced manufacturing, clean tech, digital software, and specialty health care. Louisiana --specifically New Orleans--has a reputation for having some of the finest restaurants in the world. And they are always hiring sous chefs, executive chefs, and wait staff. The candidates moving to the area in need of jobs are probably the best this state has seen in years. Many experienced restaurant employees use job boards, but they would do better if they had a recruiter to help them. Two excellent universities are based there. In addition to government employment, trades, transportation, and utilities account for a large amount of jobs in the state--making it a paradise for recruiters.
