I am a trim carpenter with knowledge of a little bit of every aspect of building residential homes (I've been doing this for over 15 years). The construction industry has pretty much come to a stop here in Desoto County at least the ones who are still building do not need additional help. I need to work and am considering going to New Orleans or Gulf area to look for work. Does anyone know what areas would be best to start off looking at for construction job, or construction companies that may be looking for good workers. I just don't want to head down there with no knowledge of the cities at all. Any help anyone has would be appreciated.

I'm not in LA...so I'm sure someone there will be able to direct you more specifically, but here's a site that might be a good start:

There are a lot of smaller homebuilders around here.

Do you do custom work?

You'll find a place in the rapidly growing Baton Rouge area and in New Orleans.

Default Work available

The local paper here in New Orleans especially Saturday lists alot of construction jobs. The job market is good. There have been alot problems of people not getting there pay both workers and contractors however.

To be honest with you, there is not that much "clean up or rebuilding" work left there anymore. My dad has been rebuilding there since the hurricane hit and he was saying the other day that work is probably not to far from running out because anyone who was going to rebuild has already done so and everyone else just cant afford it.
