WorkNOLA is a website that features jobs in the New Orleans area.
Throughout New Orleans and the surrounding areas, we are witnessing an influx of talent, a rise in creative ideas, an increased spirit of entrepreneurship and a new found social responsibility.
The spirit of renewal has become a spirit of engagement.
And in our times, technology has become the most efficient and effective tool to engage. Whether you are starting a new company, organizing a community meet-up, promoting your new band, have that perfect mobile app idea or are simply looking for like minded people, technology can undoubtedly help.
And yet locally, people contend we remain behind the times. They believe that in order to find educated and talented IT professionals to help, they must look to other more “tech-savvy” cities for solutions. People with great ideas are frustrated because they believe no local connections can be made. Or even worse, they abandon their ideas altogether.
