Hi There!

Me and my partner are planning a move to New Orleans in the spring after he completes Massage Therapy School. We will be moving down with decent savings and no jobs lined up as of yet. Since we live in Southeast Missouri making more than one trip down before the projected move might be difficult, although not impossible.

My question is this: Are restaurant jobs difficult to find there? I've worked in fine dining most of my adult life both in the kitchen as a pastry chef, sous chef, manager; and in the front as everything from bartender to server. According to Craigslist hotels, restaurants, etc. are hiring like mad. Anyone out there in the industry that can give me an idea of where it might be good to look into applying? I'm just hoping to find something post haste! I'll even drop something off at Marie Laveau's if it'll help, heh heh.

Also, we are looking to rent initially and are mainly looking through Craigslist, and again hoping to fall into something decent although it's gonna be kinda tricky doing so from here. Is it possible to find a place to rent a month or so in advance, or should we just make a trip down, stay a week and look like crazy?

Thanks for your help!
