If you're a recent college grad you probably have one thing on your mind, finding a job.

We've all been there. You're excited to finally be done with college and start your "adult" life, but you're also terrified you won't find a job. Your early 20's are a weird time in life, I mean, I'm almost 30 and I'm still worried I don't have my stuff figured out.

I do have some good news, though. If you recently graduated from LSU, UL, McNeese, or any other Louisiana college and you want to continue to love, laugh and love in "the boot", the job market is looking pretty good. And according to the career experts at Zippia.com, these are some of the best jobs for college grads in the Bayou State.
