Metairie, LA- The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) is pleased to announce the launch of www.LouisianaHospitalityJobs.com designed specifically to meet the needs of the ever-expanding Louisiana restaurant and hospitality sector. With more than 8,300 eating and drinking places in Louisiana and more than 205,000 employees, this workforce is the largest in the state. By 2027, an additional 17,400 new positions will be created by the state's restaurant industry alone. The LRA, through LouisianaHospitalityJobs.com seeks to connect employers with job seekers in an easy to navigate online interface.

"The number one topic discussed among our members is the need for quality employee talent," said Stan Harris, LRA President and CEO. "We are particularly excited to connect employers to our ProStart® Program-a culinary arts and restaurant management curriculum-offered in 65 high schools across the state. In addition, this site is a great resource for job seekers in the post-secondary hotel, restaurant and tourism programs."

The site is free for job seekers and offers the capability to search over 500 open positions available at any given time, upload or build their resume by creating a profile, and offers resources for job seekers to boost their candidacy with industry-based certifications. Job seekers who create a profile on the site will receive discounts on the ServSafe® suite of hospitality industry-specific training products, thus earning industry-based certifications.

"The hospitality industry offers various careers in a non-traditional and flexible environment," added Harris. "The LRA has recognized more than 300 individuals with a combined 8,000 years of service as Restaurant Legends in the last decade. These individuals have dedicated their careers to our industry and prove their jobs are rewarding and meaningful."

For hospitality employers, packages are available for purchase to advertise one or multiple positions and includes applicant tracking features such as messaging applicants, adding notes to applicants and forwarding applications to other staff. The capability to add screening questions to a posting further aids in identifying top candidates. All hospitality employers are welcome to purchase packages, however, LRA members save 30 percent off an individual job posting and 40 percent off a Basic 5-Pack; a Premium 10-Pack and a Premiere Employer 20-Pack. To confirm LRA membership and receive the PROMO CODE, call (504) 454-2277 or email louisianahospitalityjobs@lra.org.
