The Cost of Living in N LA remains very affordable for applicants considering our area in which to relocate and reside. According to a recent article, North Louisiana’s low cost of living gives families in the 14-parish region more bang for their buck, because they can afford a better standard of living. North Louisiana is also hiring even with the recent low unemployment reports in the news. Jeff Bomar, our Operations Manager, states..."More and more companies are seeking qualified and skilled applicants to fill the void in their facilities and offices. We have the jobs, we just need the skilled labor. If you have experience with a skilled trade and are willing to put in an honest days work, there should be no reason you aren't working."
"Currently, we are seeking around 25 applicants for AEP/SWEPCO's Call Center that are able to pass all the preliminary testing and about 60 wait staff applicants with a Shreveport ABO Card that are available for local concerts and events at all hours of the day and night. Aside from that, we have over 100 jobs available ranging from part-time, temp only and temp to full time as well as 40 Professional Direct Hire openings for highly experienced professionals. The job market in this area is GOOD but companies unfortunately aren't willing to take on applicants that don't have the experience they need. They just don't have the time to spare training them", Bomar states. Although that may not always be the case, it is the current situation. If you are currently out of work, it's a great time to reflect on why that is. "If you need to brush up on your skill set, sign up for classes or attend a technical school. Be willing to do what you need to do to earn an honest day's pay, even if you feel it is beneath you."
