The ultimate objective of occupational training is to put people to work. It is not enough to teach a person a gainful skill; North Georgia Technical College also offers assistance to that person in finding suitable employment. Thus, supplementary to the training program at North Georgia Tech, there is a job placement and follow-up program. The Director of Career Services coordinates this function. While every effort is made to make students employable and to aid students in securing employment for which they were trained, the ultimate responsibility for finding a job rests with the student.

Career Services at North Georgia Tech include job referrals, job-seeking skills, and follow-up activities that aim at improving the quality of education at NGTC. Some of the objectives are:

  • To identify student’s needs, interests, and job proficiencies
  • To provide materials for career guidance
  • To assist students in making meaningful employment choices
  • To assist students in selecting additional preparation and/or education
  • To work with school staff in ensuring that students receive Interpersonal Relations and Professional Development training
  • To gain awareness of the job market and locate potential employers
  • To offer workshops and one-on-one sessions to perfect resumes, interviewing skills and proper completion of employment applications
  • …and much much more!
