Career Services

At Wiregrass Georgia Technical College, we train students for entry-level employment, advancement, and lifelong learning, and then help students find suitable employment. The Career Services office is committed to assisting current and former students in finding meaningful work by providing job leads, job search skills, seminars, job fairs, and much more. The Career Services staff cannot guarantee jobs for students but will gladly partner with students to help them experience success in their job search.
