JOB GURU

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “I moved to New Orleans from Los Angeles late last Fall and intended to start job hunting as soon as the holidays were over. But right after the holidays, there was the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras, and now it’s Jazz Fest time! Fortunately, I have some savings, and my background in marketing should fit in well, but I need to start looking soon. Is summer a bad time to look for work in the Big Easy?” — Sara K., New Orleans, LA

Dear Sara, If you’re waiting for the festival and partying season to end in New Orleans, don’t hold your breath… At any given time of year, we have festivals and celebrations for every imaginable reason. As you know, we just finished the French Quarter Festival. Jazz Fest takes us through early May, and then there’s the New Orleans Wine & Food Experience, the Greek Festival, Tales of the Cocktail, Essence Festival, and Grant Cooper the Satchmo Summer Fest. White Linen Night ties up the summer. Traditionally, summer has been a good job hunting season. Many professionals change jobs in the summer and settle in to new positions in time to get kids into new schools and communities. Our résumé writing and career coaching firm is seasonal, and summer is always one of our busiest times of year. However, keep in mind that summer is vacation time and scheduling interviews with companies of interest can be problematic. It may take longer in the summer to get a search committee or interview panel together for interviews. One client of Strategic Résumés arrived in New Orleans last summer and decided to attend the Essence Festival. During the festivities, he met some influential people in his field. He then called our office to quickly update his résumé, and after circulating it to his new acquaintances, he landed a great position in medical administration.

The main question is how to look for work in New Orleans. As you may know by now, New Orleans is a very sociable city, and you can use that factor to your advantage. As you are out there celebrating and partying, take the time to ask people where they work, what they do, and show an interest in their fields. Invite them to lunch (food is always a good intro here), and since you have a bit of spare time now, offer to help with their projects or events. Try not to inquire too closely about a job until you have gained their trust and demonstrated your abilities. Here are a few factors that make a New Orleans summer job search a good bet: • As you will very soon find out, our challenging temperatures and humidity keep many tourists and visitors away from New Orleans in the summer, so it is easier to stand out. • Interviewers are more relaxed as everything slows down here. In some industries, like accounting, winter and spring are the busiest, so summer is when they are likely to hire and train new staff. • There are more contract-to-hire positions in the summer, as companies recruit temps to fill in for staff on vacation and sabbaticals. Those who shine in temp positions are often hired. • Longer daylight hours, lax schedules, unofficial long weekends, and company gatherings for July 4th and Memorial Day before the faster pace of Fall returns, all add up to premium networking opportunities. New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper. President of Strategic Résumés®, Grant ranks within the top LinkedIn Résumé Writing Experts nationwide and has assisted the U.S. Air Force, Kinko’s, the Louisiana Dept. of Labor, the City of New Orleans, NFL/NBA players & coaches, as well as universities, regional banks, celebrities, and major corporations.
