NOLA Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras Isn’t Just Revelry; It’s Business!
As a firm that has been recruiting in New Orleans for the last five years, we have learned that executive job placements come to a near halt at Mardi Gras season.  And, there’s good reason for that.  Mardi Gras is an extraordinary celebration that everyone can partake in, but it’s also an important economic event that affects all businesses.  In fact, a recent study found that the economic impact of Mardi Gras is close to $900 million.  
“Carnival in New Orleans is one of the most remarkable and influential events on the planet,” said Walt Leger III, President and CEO of New Orleans & Company. “Only the people of New Orleans could dream of and execute such a technically complex, creative and innovative celebration for our community. The existence of Mardi Gras ensures that the City of New Orleans is known as a city of creativity and celebration that people come from around the globe to be a part of it. Creating such a tremendous economic impact for our people, businesses, city and state is a testimony to the unique way we live and seamlessly blend creativity, history, culture and celebration with business and innovation.”
