This publication and its Web site introduce Louisiana graduates who are top performers with impressive academic credentials and relevant work experience to companies throughout the state. They are individuals with leadership potential who have the self-confidence and creativity to invent and implement original ideas. They are looking for opportunities to put the knowledge gained from school into solving challenging problems and performing rewarding work. Use Louisiana GRADUATES Ready to Work as a resource to recruit this outstanding Louisiana talent.

As a company that employs approximately 5,300 Louisianans and has a long history of supporting our communities and our economy, we encourage other companies to join us in helping our young people. We believe that reinvesting in the communities where we live and work will enhance the vitality and quality of life in those areas that are, in large part, responsible for our success. We hope these graduates receive opportunities to achieve success right here at home, too.


E. Renae Conley
President and CEO/Entergy Louisiana

One of this state�s greatest resources is its people � especially our young people who have recently graduated from Louisiana colleges and universities with top honors in their chosen field of study. These talented, dedicated graduates deserve an opportunity to utilize their skills and talents in meaningful jobs right here in their home state.

That�s the goal of this unique publication � to provide information about these outstanding graduates to Louisiana businesses that are seeking outstanding employees. It�s a perfect match. BellSouth is proud to be a sponsor of this publication and to work in partnership with Entergy, the Governor�s office and the Baton Rouge Business Report to make this publication possible. We are even prouder to play a part in helping our young people find challenging opportunities and rewarding employment here in Louisiana.

BellSouth�s tradition of service began in 1879 � about four years after the invention of the telephone. BellSouth has a vested interest in the long-term viability of Louisiana. Our 6,000 employees live here and work here. They volunteer their time supporting numerous educational initiatives such as Job Shadowing, Junior Achievement and NetDay activities, which enrich the educational experiences of our young people. They also participate in other community service projects in an effort to make this great state an even better place in which to live, to work and to raise a family.

I am proud of the volunteer efforts of our active employees, and equally proud of the contributions made by our 4,500 retired employees, who continue to volunteer their time and energy to improve life in their communities. As a corporation, BellSouth has also contributed nearly $3.5 million during the past five years alone to fund key education initiatives in this state. These contributions range from endowed professorships at numerous colleges and universities, to teacher mini-grants for elementary and secondary education. BellSouth is also committed to supporting efforts, such as this publication, that are designed to keep Louisiana moving forward.

Congratulations, graduates, and best of luck to you as you pursue your dreams.
