One of the primary purposes of Career Services is to help Southern Crescent Technical College students decide on a viable program of study. There are tools available to SCTC students to help in degree/program selection. First there is Focus2. Focus2 is an online career assessment test that enables students to evaluate their personal qualities and job preferences. Using these assessment results, a Career Services advisor can help a student explore career fields and develop a personal career plan.
Another useful resource offered by Career Services is NACElink which is an online job posting system. By setting up an account, SCTC students can access daily employer job postings. Students can also upload their resumes to an online resume book that can be viewed by registered employers. Career Services staff is also available by appointment to help students either develop or refine a resume.
During the semester, Career Services offers workshops covering topics such as: resumes, work ethics, the interview and job search. Printed materials offering advice on interviewing, dress for success, job search strategies, and other related subjects are available as well. Career Services has offices in the Career and Academic Planning Center on the Griffin Campus and on the Flint River Campus in Room 250. Also Career Services staff will meet students at any of the Centers by appointment.
Career Services actively solicits job postings from area employers and notifies students and recent graduates of employment opportunities as they become available. It is impossible to guarantee each graduate a job; however, Career Services works to provide job leads and send graduates on appropriate interviews. Career Services strives to provide career choices for SCTC students and connect area employers with the talent they need to maintain productivity.
