Thomasville, Georgia-September 17, 2012
A new course is being offered to help future entrepreneurs succeed in the workforce.
Southwest Georgia Technical College's Office of Economic Development is offering a course called, "Getting Into Business and Staying There."
The four-week program is open to the public and is designed to teach students how to successfully run their own businesses.
Some topics that will be covered are finances, marketing skills and legal requirements.
"We're providing information that the person who has never experienced this before can use to help them go on and create that business and get the job satisfaction that they're looking for," said Gary Pitts, vice president of SWGTC's Economic Development.
Jalissa Trimble, is a student at SWGTC. She added, "It gets us ready and prepared for the real world and it also helps us, as students here, to learn the value of money earlier, before we start working."
The course costs $100 and will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, from September 18th through October 11th.
