BATON ROUGE - The University of Louisiana System has reached a deal to help its more than 92,000 students find jobs after graduation.

The Advocate reports the nine-college system's partnership with MyEdu of Austin, Texas, also is billed as a way for students to stay on track with schoolwork, shorten their time to graduation and find internships.

Since 2010, MyEdu has been working with universities and collecting data to help students develop personal plans.

The company uses a social media platform similar to LinkedIn to give students one place where they can plan their school schedules, build a degree "road map" and keep track of their progress as they move closer toward graduation.

The company got its initial boost through a $10 million investment from the University of Texas system.
