Thomasville, GA-October 10, 2012
A college in our area is celebrating some exciting statistics regarding their graduate job placement rate.
Southwest Georgia Technical College received 100% total graduate placement rate for Fiscal Year 2011.
That means all of their graduates currently have jobs, hold military positions or are continuing their education.
The college's career center works closely with the students to help get them prepared to enter the workforce, especially during the tough job market.
"We help them with job searches, with resume writing, interview skills, mock interviews, how to dress for the interview, how to dress for the job and how to keep the job," said Dr. Jeanine Long, the Director of Career Placement at SWGTC.
Ninety-seven percent of graduates landed jobs in their fields of study.
That score landed SWGTC the 2nd highest job placement rate out of the 25 technical colleges in the State of Georgia.
