OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. In his 9th year in the host seat, Ricchiuti's learned but uniquely NOLA informal perspective has established Out to Lunch as the voice of Crescent City business. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

You’re Hired – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

If you’re looking for a job, one of the most tedious aspects of the search is constantly refining your resume so it looks appealing to your prospective employer.

If you’re an employer, one of the most time-wasting aspects of searching for the right person is meeting prospective employees and finding out they’re not quite as impressive as their resume.

Crystal McDonald’s New Orleans company, Acrew, is changing all that – for both job seekers and employers.

The Acrew method of applying for a job does away with the resume. And the first  face-to-face interview.

Yes, it’s pretty radical. But like Like many revolutionary ideas, it’s so simple you wonder why someone didn’t think of it years ago.
