Career Services - GCIC Website
Using the GCIC website for Career Exploration:

1. Go to

2. Click on the link that says "Click Here to Enter".

3. The username for the next page you come to is laniertcl and the password is gcis902.

4. You will come to the main home page for the GA Career Information System (GCIS). On the right hand side of the page, click on the link that says "My Portfolio".

5. On the next page, click on the link that says "Create My Portfolio".

6. At this time, you will now create your profile by submitting your information and creating a username and password of your own. The username and password must contain alphabetical and numerical characters. For example, if your name is Jane Doe, your username might be jdoe1111. Your password may then be something specific that you can remember easily.

7. Once you have successfully created a profile, on the next page you will select if you would like a counselor to have access to your information. You do not need to select "Yes" in order to gain access to the website.

8. On the next page, you will see a link that says "Start Using the Georgia Career Information System." Click on the graphic next this link to start your exploration.

9. You will be taken back to the home page for GCIS. On the left hand side of the page are a number of links that can help you learn more about yourself and careers. For our purposes at Lanier Tech, we like students to start with the O*Net Interest Profiler. Please click on this link on the left hand side of the page.

10. The next page will explain a little bit about the Interest Profiler. After reading this page, click on "Find your work related interests".

11. The next page gives you instructions for the Interest Profiler. To re-iterate, answer the questions in the survey based on the first thing that comes to your mind. Do not try to make assumptions about whether or not you CAN or CANNOT do what the question asks, but whether you LIKE or DISLIKE the career or activity in question. For example, the first question says "Build Kitchen Cabinets." You should answer LIKE, UNSURE, or DISLIKE based on the first answer that comes to you when you read that question.

12. The survey has 180 questions. When you finish the survey, click on the button that says "Get Survey Results".

13. You will come to a page that lists different profiles based on the way you answered the questions. These categories relate to your preferences in relation to careers. Each category is a link to other pages that list occupations related to your interest category.

14. Before you begin exploring occupations, go to the top of page and save your answers/scores to your portfolio. Once you have done that, you can retrieve your scores at a later date.

15. As you explore occupations related to your interest categories, make notes of careers that spark your interest and write them down.

16. Once you finish, you can use this information as you look at academic programs of study on college websites like Lanier Tech's at

17. Good luck and happy exploring! Please contact us at 770-531-2569 or email if you have any questions.
