There were 152,752 available job postings in 2015 alone, and it is estimated that by 2022, Louisiana will add over 235,000 new jobs. Louisiana’s economic expansion creates three significant workforce challenges: an industrial boom, completing the “big crew change” due to retiring baby boomers, and meeting a statewide need for a high-quality, 21st century workforce.
Louisiana offers access to a wide variety of training pathways – all tailored to the sustainable jobs and great careers available right here and right now. Louisiana's K–12 system, community colleges, technical colleges, technical training providers, and four-year universities are focused like never before on building the high-value workforce our state needs.
Louisiana Calling is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring all Louisiana residents to find the educational and career pathways that best lead them to the life they hope for and the success they want. Our passion is building opportunity for Louisiana's citizens, families, and communities.
