Career and Major Exploration:
Are you interested in seeing what majors and careers are best suited for your interests, skills, values, and personality? Currently enrolled students have access to an online self-assessment, FOCUS2. This assessment will help you connect Georgia College undergraduate and graduate majors and degrees with occupations. To get started with FOCUS2, click here.
Students can also elect to contact Counseling Services to schedule an appointment for a formalized assessment and career counseling session.
What Can I Do with this Major?
After completing FOCUS2, you may want to do further research through our What Can I Do with this Major? program. This resource also allows you to quickly review career options and strategies related to academic fields you are considering. Websites related to the career fields are also available.
The University Career Center staff is available for individual appointments with undergraduate and graduate students as well as alumni. While most appointments are conducted in the Career Center, graduate students in Macon and Warner Robins often use our services via telephone and email.
If you need a career advisor to review your resume, provide job and internship search assistance, or discuss career options related to majors, 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. Drop-in questions are always welcome, but an appointment is always recommended for longer advising sessions. Contact Pam Spires at (478) 445-5384 or email our office.
Career Development Workshops
Each semester, we present a variety of workshops to assist students prepare for the job, internship, and graduate school search. These programs are presented in an informal atmosphere and are ideal for students who are just beginning an aspect of the career development process. Many students choose to attend workshop before making an individual appointment.
For students who want to be the most prepared for their internship, job or graduate school search should consider completing Intern Ready or Backpack-to-Briefcase Career Development Series. Most of our workshops and networking events count toward the completion of either series.
All events are listed through Career Connection. We also welcome student organizations who would like to co-sponsor a program with us. To ensure student participation, we prefer these types of partnerships for night and weekend career programs. To schedule a presentation for your student group, please contact the Career Center.
