Jobs after graduation looks promising for U of L grads

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- With graduation season in full swing, experts say the class of 2013 will face an improved job market, with more options than graduates have seen in years.

There are certain industries looking to hire college graduates right away.

There are industries where hiring is much more common, in fields like healthcare and Information Technology, but one expert tells WDRB that they're also beginning to see a pick up in sales and marketing jobs.

Students will become graduates and then search for a way to make a living after college.

Many who walk across the stage will walk into an office or other work space after their college career comes to an end.

Those who keep a close eye on the job market say things are looking up for this year's graduates.

"The job market for college seniors is a lot better than it was 2 or 3 years ago when we were in the teeth of the recession and just crawling out. So what we know about the Louisville economy is that it's pretty diversified and we're seeing job openings and growth in a lot of different sectors," says Michael Gritton Exec. Director, Kentuckiana Works.

Experts say that just because students earn a degree in one area does not mean they should be limited to that particular field.
