Career Development Center

Albany Technical College’s Career Services Department is committed to assisting active students and graduates in the pursuit of suitable, rewarding employment. While the Career Services Office does not guarantee all students employment upon graduation, the Career Services staff, along with instructional staff, constantly seeks to assist students with employment opportunities before and after graduation.

The Career Services Office will conduct follow-ups on graduates and employers each semester. These surveys ensure that Albany Technical College is achieving its educational objective of providing students and graduates with the skills necessary to perform in a competitive workforce environment. The Career Services Office maintains a database of potential employers in addition to Internet access of employment Web sites.
