Career and Major Exploration: 

Focus 2 Career Assessment
Are you interested in seeing which majors and careers are best suited for your interests, skills, values, and personality? Currently enrolled students have access to an online self-assessment, FOCUS 2.  This assessment will help you connect Georgia College undergraduate and graduate majors and degrees with occupations. To get started with FOCUS 2, click here.

Once you complete Focus 2, we recommend scheduling an appointment with the Career Center to discuss your options. If you are struggling with the decision making process after your Career Center appointment, you may consider making an appointment with Counseling Services for a formalized career assessment and career counseling session. 

What Can I Do with this Major?
After completing FOCUS 2, you may want to do further research through our What Can I Do with this Major? resource. This resource also allows you to quickly review career options and strategies related to a variety of academic disciplines.

Additional Career Research
Resources such as the Occupational Outlook Handbook and O*Net can provide you with detailed information on the occupations you are considering.  Information includes job duties, required skills and training, average salary, and job outlook.  

Individual Appointments
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 us at (478) 445-5384 or email our office.

Career Development Programs
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.
