Federal Jobs in Louisiana
The Gretna Levee (pictured above) is part of the USACE developed flood protection system that protects many parts of Louisiana from the fluctuating waters of the Mississippi River.
Louisiana has seen large demographic and social changes as a result of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. The state’s federal workforce has also been in flux during this period with the Federal Emergency Management Agency becoming the state’s second largest federal employer behind the Veterans Health Administration. FEMA employs nearly 1,500 in the state followed closely by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which has been working to repair the state’s flood management system. Another major federal employer is the USDA’s National Finance Center which employs over 1,000 at its New Orleans offices.
