The Career Services function is performed by the Career Services Specialist. Specific services include career counseling, career resource library through various computer systems, career referrals, and distribution of career planning and development literature. Annual Career Fairs are held and periodically interviews with specific companies are held on campus.
The Career Services Department maintains an internet program for students and alumni looking for careers and for employers with career opportunities. For assistance, individuals should contact the Career Services Specialist at 770-533-7009. In order to maintain contact with graduates, follow-up services are conducted. Surveys are distributed to graduates as well as to employers to gather some follow-up information on whether students are achieving educational objectives and receiving the skills they need to become successful.
Lanier Technical College’s Career Services Department works to help community employers find qualified employees among Lanier Technical College’s highly trained pool of students and graduates.
