Cerasoli 's Jobs

I decided to check out the City web site to see if the City is advertising for the positions recently approved for the new Inspector General's Office.

I went to the and looked up the Civil Service Commission. This is what I found;

Welcome to the Civil Service Website . . .

The Civil Service Commission is the policy-making body that exercises oversight of activities of the City Civil Service Department. It is a quasi-judicial body with the power to make rules which have the force and effect of law. It decides employee appeals of disciplinary action and adopts rules and establishes polices that regulate the conduct of labor and management in the merit system.

The Civil Service Department is responsible for the overall administration of the personnel function in city government.

Office hours:
Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Department of City Civil Service
Room 7W03 City Hall
1300 Perdido Street
New Orleans, LA 70112

Applications for Employment in Civil Service positions with the City of New Orleans are taken for specific positions for which we anticipate vacancies. The announcements for these positions are posted outside of our City Hall office.

I wonder how anyone except insiders finds out about the jobs. I checked the Louisiana Works web site and found a number of governmental jobs, but none identified the City of New Orleans as the employer.

city jobs are never posted online. When we tried to move home I considered applying but I was told repeatedly to come in. They won't even tell you over the phone. It's like it's a big secret.
