B.R. makes Forbes list of top college towns for jobs

11 posts in this topic

Baton Rouge was ranked eighth on Forbes magazine's list of the top college towns for jobs. The city earned the ranking by seeing a 2.16% increase in job growth since last year. Forbes notes that research universities are fertile grounds for businesses because recent graduates form a deep pool of highly skilled, cheap labor and there's a lot of public and private money for research and development. Provo, Utah, home of Brigham Young University, was ranked first. Officials with the Baton Rouge Area Chamber seized on the Forbes ranking to push for Senate Bill 183 by Sen. Conrad Appel, R-Metairie, a constitutional amendment that would provide greater flexibility in terms of funding to the management boards of the state’s four research universities. In a statement, Adam Knapp, BRAC president and CEO, says Appel's bill will give schools the ability to properly fund their operations, keeping graduates and the spin-off jobs they may produce. See the full Forbes report here.

I like Hattiesburg. Waffle House, Burger King, McDonalds, Long John Silvers, IHOP... a gastronomical smorgasbord of epic proportions.

Baton Rouge has grown considerably since I lived there in the mid 1990's. It's sooo crowded now.

      First of all good game ARK fans.  Every year this game drives me crazy.  This years Stupid for us: 1. Kirk muffing a punt first thing handing ARK 7.  He also uncharacteristically dropped a few passes. 2. A combination of bad play calling and QB inadequacy for 3 quarters.   3. Our secondary was bad bad bad.  ARK should have throw the ball to #4 over and over and over, you guys would have had 60 points.  Harvey (#1) was having a horrible game covering him. The great stuff was the goal line stands by our D, and the ability for our defense to come out after that 10 minute drive and still not break.  I truly though we were done after that long drive.(even though we held at the goal line.)  I figured our defense would be like butter the rest of the night but they came out and finished the game.. 60 minutes  wow. 2014 Sugar Bowl Trevor Knight,  come out come out wherever you are?!?!?
