BATON ROUGE- Thousands of students from LSU and Southern Univeristy will be walking across the stage Friday to receive their diplomas.

As those students make the walk across stage things are looking good for them on the other side.

In Novermber, the U.S. economy added over 100,000 jobs, dropping the unemployment rate to 7.7 percent, the lowest since December 2008.

Career services at LSU says its seen a hike in employers recruiting students for jobs.

"This fall we've seen the recruitment cycle participation for recruiters up. So it seems like the market is on the upward trends and there are opportunities," said Jessie Downs, with LSU Career Services.

Experts say the job growth suggests that most employers are hiring despite the looming fiscal cliff.
