The College’s Career Services Office provides both students and alumni with a wide variety of programs designed to develop their professional skills and achieve their career goals. The staff offers individual career coaching, resume reviews, career assessment tools that explore interests, skills and values and interview preparation both in person and through an online application.

“Our Career Services Department is in tune with the ever-changing job market,” said Beth Kirker, director of career services. She continued, “The staff prepares students to meet employer demands through hands-on assistance with one-on-one counseling to search for a job; résumé, cover letter, and interview assistance to apply for a job; and comprehensive access to internships and other real-world experiences to prepare for a job.”

Employers support the Career Services Department through job postings, career fair participation, on-campus recruitment and providing mock interview sessions. Students and alumni have access to the marketplace through the Handshake platform, two career fairs, and numerous employer networking events held throughout the year.

GBC offers an internship program for both domestic and international students to gain experience in their field to enhance their learning experience. Students can capture their co-curricular transcript in their e-portfolio with a record of campus activities that highlight their skills and can be shared with employers when applying for jobs.
