Career Fairs

Connecting Students with Employers and Graduate Programs

How will you use your GC degree?  Let us show you!  Students at Georgia College have the opportunity to meet employers and graduate programs at over 15 career fairs held right on campus.  This resource is unique for a university our size, and through the Career Planning Milestones, students begin preparing for these professional interactions from day one of their college experience.  Employers can expect to meet well-prepared students with a depth of knowledge in their major and a breath of knowledge developed through internships, campus leadership, volunteerism, and other transformational experiences unique to the Georgia College Experience.  

To register for career fairs and networking events, students and employers should visit Handshake. 
Employers and graduate/professional school programs are welcome to reach out to us with questions about the registration process.
