There are a lot of of quotes about why New Orleans is the most fabulous city in the world. Tennesee Williams once said, “America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland.” John Goodman followed this up a few dozen years later with, “Someone suggested that there’s an incomplete part of our chromosomes that gets repaired or found when we hit New Orleans. Some of us just belong here.” Maybe, here at trepwise, we’d prefer Victor Schiro’s campaign slogan, “If it’s good for New Orleans, I’m for it.” As such, we’ve rounded up a few more job opportunities from our partners in the community. Please check out below, and forward to anyone interested!
