Connecting Students with Employers and Graduate Programs
How will you use your GCSU degree? Let us show you! Students at Georgia College & State University have the opportunity to meet employers and graduate programs at a variety of career fairs throughout the year. 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. See the list of career fairs this semester below.
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.
