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 Pam Spires at 478-445-5384.
The Career Center is involved in 5 career fairs each year. 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 program for more information.
Alumni can now sign-up for campus interviews via our Career Connection software. In addition to interviews for specific job openings, many companies visit campus to conduct practice interviews with students. Practice interviews are also recommended for alumni since they offer a great way to network and connect with a company.
Robins Air Force Base
Many alumni contact us about opportunities to work at Robins Air Force Base, the largest employer in middle Georgia. Please check the Campus Interview portion of Career Connection to see if they are interviewing on campus. If they are not interviewing on campus, you must apply for jobs with them through www.usajobs.gov. This federal career website also provides listings for all other federal positions.
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.
Access the Student Services section of our website for links to our public listing of career information. However, our Career Resource Library on Career Connection provides you with all of our printed career information packets, sample resumes, and additional employer information.
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. The bookshelf is currently located to the right of the circulation desk.
