Alumni Career Services

Alumni are always welcome to attend GC sponsored career fairs and employer activities.  Alumni may also contact the Career Center for assistance with resumes, interviewing, and job search strategies.  For handouts we use with career changers and graduate students, click here.

Hire GC Students
If you are an alumni who is interested in connecting with GC students about career opportunities, contact our Employer Relations Team.  You can also register in our Career Connection database as an employer.

Register with Career Connection as a Job Seeker
Our Career Connection job board, career event calendar, and campus interview scheduling system will allow alumni to stay connected with the opportunities and services provided by the Career Center.  View job postings, receive emails related to your major/field, sign up for campus interviews, access information in our online career resource library, and register for career fairs and workshops.  All alumni who use our services are required to register.  Click here to register. 

Join the Georgia College Alumni LinkedIn Group
Are you interested in networking with other GC alumni?  We have over 800 alumni in the group that can now be a part of your network.  To get started, you will need a profile at www.linkedin.com.  Then request to join the Georgia College Alumni Group. Please make sure Georgia College is listed in your profile so that we know to approve you as a GC alumni.  To learn more about using LinkedIn for your job search, use the LinkedIn Profile Checklist.

Schedule an Appointment with a Career Advisor
If you need a career advisor to review your resume, provide job and internship search assistance, or advise you on career options, we recommend scheduling an appointment.  Before major events such as career fairs, students are encouraged to schedule a resume critique session.  Appointments can be made Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. If you are driving in from out-of-town, we strongly recommend scheduling an appointment so that someone is available to see you.  Contact our office at 478-445-5384.

Career Fairs
The Career Center is involved in over 10 career fairs each year.  Alumni may have a particular interest in the fall Career Opportunities Fair and the spring Statewide Career Fair, both held in Atlanta. Alumni are always invited to these events.  If you would like feedback on your resume prior to the event, please email one of our career advisors. You can never get too much feedback on this very important document!  Visit our Career Fair page for students as well as our Career Connection site for more information.

Campus Interviews
Alumni can now sign-up for campus interviews via our Career Connection job and internship database.  

Attend a Career Development Workshop
Register with Career Connection to view our calendar of events which includes workshops, career fairs, interviews, and employer information sessions. 

On-line Resources
In addition to the Career Connection job and internship database, alumni can also access our virtual mock interview system, InterviewStream.  Alumni who would like to complete a career assessment can access Focus 2 if they have a "bobcats" email address. In addition, our Career Resource Library on Career Connection provides you with all of our printed career information packets, sample resumes, and additional employer information.

Printed Resources
The Georgia College Library and Instructional Technology Center now has a bookshelf dedicated to career development.  Students, alumni, and community members have access to over 100 of the best career development publications.
