Hospitality Jobs in New Orleans

New Orleans is a destination that draws millions of domestic and international visitors each year. Simply put, people want to spend their time here, so much so that the New York Times ranked New Orleans the #1 destination in the world in 2018. In addition to some of the world’s most famous events, like Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, New Orleans is proud to host many major sporting events each year, including the Sugar Bowl, Final 4, Wrestle Mania, and more Superbowls than any other city. New Orleans also boasts one of the nation’s largest convention centers, which together with our numerous hotels, can welcome up to 12 conferences in the city at one time.

As a result, the Greater New Orleans region is home to a robust hospitality industry covering every aspect of being the “Host with the Most,” from hotels and restaurants to festivals and events to casinos and entertainment. If you’re in the business of playing host, New Orleans is a premier market for your talent.
