re: Places to Help with Finding Employment


I'm about to make the move out to Dallas/Fort Worth for that reason.

Has it occurred to you that St. Tammany Parish is not a hotbed of employment and that you may need to spend less time on TD and actually knock on some doors in a city that is booming...


I am hesitant to move out of state with no support system consisting of friends and family and lock into a long-term lease with a shaky economy. First hired are first fired. I do not want to be stuck with a lease when I have no job to pay for it.

my better half has had good results with Indeed.com and Idealist.org. Monster.com is the past and Craigslist is, well, Craigslist

You need a boost in confidence. You are not going to find a job anywhere if you believe you will be fired before you even accept an offer. Sometimes it is best to make a life changing decision and go on your own for a year or so. You really need to do some activity to relax a little bit and keep your mind focused. There is opportunities available for you, it will be a matter of time.

What was your dream job when you got your Masters in Counselor Education? School counselor? Working for a non-profit?

I'd call every nonprofit organization in NOLA that work with disadvantaged youths to look for an opening.

If you don't care to use your degree, move to North Dakota and work at the boomtown, or work offshore here.

You will never be successful with that mindset. You are holding yourself back.

False. Recent hires (which I'm assuming you're talking about here) are usually cheaper and doing more work.

A quick scan shows that the RSD and the Charter Schools in NOLA are hiring a bunch of administrative positions.

My gf works for a recruiting firm, I would suggest googling your area + recruiting firm and reaching out to one of them.

re: Places to Help with Finding Employment


Jabarkus, taking into account your non-specialized degrees, I think you need to focus your energy on landing a government job. Many government jobs do not care about your area of study, and they will provide you with work experience and benefits to allow you to eventually move up the ladder.

Being in St. Tammany, you're actually in a decent situation because you can peruse both the Mississippi and Louisiana Civil Services.

Investigate the http://www.mspb.ms.gov/ and the http://www.civilservice.louisiana.gov/ websites.

Just a warning, though. If you're not already familiar with the way state government works, it can be a VERY long process from applying, to getting called for an interview, to being offered a job. So it's best that you have some other irons in the fire while you do this.
