UPDATE: Website Dedicated to Small Business Jobs for Katrina Evacuees

A website at www.KatrinaDisplacedJOBS.com dedicated to listing job openings specifically for evacuees of areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina, has been created by Ascent Business Systems, Inc. and Intelligent Netware. The web site will be available on Tuesday, September 13, 2005. We apologize for any inconvenience.

“When our customer heard about the concept of making jobs available for Katrina evacuees, they were happy to rise to the occasion,” says Mike Hutar, President of Houston-based Ascent Business Systems.

Participating business owners will be able to post job opportunities on the site by contacting the site administrator. Job openings are listed by state, city and occupation.

“When Ascent requested my assistance in building a website, my wife Angelina and I were both honored to participate,” says Daniel Comp, creator of San Antonio-based Intelligent Netware. “It’s often difficult for a small business to offer funds; however, we can always assist using talents and resources inherent to our existing businesses.”
