HBCU Xavier University rated best college in Louisiana for getting a job.


Xavier University of Louisiana is the best college in Louisiana for getting a job. That’s the finding the of Zippia – a new website dedicated to helping recent grads with their career choices – which ranked Xavier number one in Louisiana based on a study of job placement rates at year 10 after students graduated.

The site listed the top schools in each of the 50 states. The results are here:

Says Zippia: “One of the most important things to college freshmen, if not the most important, is that the college they have chosen to attend will ultimately help them find a job… Not all schools are equal in this, and some colleges are vastly more supportive of their students’ post-graduation concerns than others.”

According to the California-based website, their rankings are based on data provided by IPEDS (the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System), which is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). IPEDS gathers information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs. More than 7,500 institutions complete IPEDS surveys each year, including research universities, state colleges and universities, private religious and liberal arts colleges.

Using IPEDS, Zippia compared the job placement ratings of colleges in each state, looking specifically at employment levels at year 10 after students have graduated.
