The Energizer General

Robert Cerasoli

I seem to see Inspector General Cerasoli every time I watch the local TV news. He is unfatigued. He meets with bloggers and neighborhood groups all the time. He's everywhere and always seems to be in good humor.

My recent post about his jobs was either in error or a little too early.

The initial positions in the Inspector General's Office are now on the City Web Site. Cerasoli sent me the link. He also asked me to help get the word out.

I still can't figure out how to get there from the City Home Page.
Unfortunately none of the jobs are listed there. I still can't find them without a guide. I guess I'm not smart enough to work for the City. If anyone can figure out how to get there through the web site, please let me know.

It also appears the State Department of Labor job site, LAworks, now has the jobs listed, although they aren't identified as being for the City of New Orleans or the IG's office, something I think would be positive.

Here are the current positions;
