NOLA BOUND

COME HOME TO A JOB IN NOLA.

NOLA BOUND is an initiative of 504ward, GNO, Inc. and NOLABA with a mission to connect Greater New Orleans area employers with homegrown New Orleans talent through innovative digital resources (webinars, virtual career fairs, etc.) and pop-ups while expats are back in town over the holidays and for special events like French Quarter Fest. New Orleans expats (i.e. anyone who knows and loves New Orleans — grew up here, visited, went to college here, did a fellowship here, etc.), potential transplants, and locals are invited to participate in virtual and in-person events to connect with potential employers and learn about new developments in a region rich in culture and economic opportunity.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “Thank you so much for putting together the NOLA Bound webinar. I just sat down with my wife to view it and honestly it made me feel incredibly encouraged about our decisions to move to New Orleans. With all of the innovation coming in education and healthcare, I think we will make a great impact. Coming from Florida and not having any solid foundation in New Orleans is part of the excitement of making something new come to life.” – November 2017 Webinar Participant
