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.

Guaranteed Education

Curriculum standards have been developed with direct involvement of business and industry. These standards serve as the industry-validated specifications for each occupational program. The TCSG guarantee to every one of our students is this:

If one of our graduates educated under a standard program and his/her employer finds that the graduate is deficient in one or more competencies as defined in the standards, the technical college will retrain the employee at no instructional cost to the employee or the employer.

This guarantee is in effect for a period of two years after graduation.
