Student Affairs >> Career Development
The Career Services Office at Athens Technical College is a unit of the Student Affairs Division. Our mission is to provide students and alumni with assistance in learning about the world of work, developing job search skills, and locating suitable employment opportunities. We offer you access to career-related tools, such as the Georgia Career Information System (GCIS), where you will find career exploration inventories, as well as information on developing resumes, writing cover letters, participating in job interviews, and learning other job search skills.
Each quarter the staff in Career Services offers workshops on topics such as career exploration, resume development, cover letter writing, and polishing interview skills. Students will have the opportunity to learn strategies and techniques on how to be successful in a competitive and dynamic job market.
Employment opportunities are available from the online Athens Technical College Job Referral Listings which have recent announcements from local and regional employers in both the public and private sectors. Positions are also posted on the Job Boards for each Athens Tech campus. Other sources for job leads are listed below.
Employers who do not discriminate in their employment practices or policies on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, gender, religion, disability, age, political affiliation or belief, disabled veteran, veteran of the Vietnam Era, or citizenship status (except in those special circumstances permitted or mandated by law) are encouraged to contact the Career Services office to post announcements of their job openings free of charge. Staffing agencies (third party recruiters) may participate in posting their available positions only in the event there is no charge to students for successful placement. Please send a description of the job to be posted either by fax to 706-369-5756, or by email.
