Talent Acquisition & Professional Development

For organizations building the technological workforce of the future, there are a number of ways to access the deep well of talent at Georgia Tech. Whether it’s involvement in career fairs, or through Tech’s extensive online resume book, or by simply raising an organization’s profile on campus, recruitment usually begins with the Center for Career Discovery and Development (C2D2), the nexus for all things career related at Georgia Tech.

C2D2 is not only the central hub of information and resources helping scholars from all majors find work (and learn how work works). It’s also the conduit between an organization’s employment needs and Georgia Tech’s most gifted resources: students who begin their career education the moment they arrive on campus.

An employer relations team stands ready to guide any organization in all aspects of its search for cutting-edge employees, whether person-to-person, or through a suite of tools, programs, and resources:

  • The employer relations team system allows employers to post job openings, review applicant resumes, request space for on-campus interviews, select and invite students to interviews, and tap into many other job management functions. CareerBuzz is available 24x7.
  • Georgia Tech’s co-op and internship programs offer opportunities for students to gain experience in their fields and provide employers with well-educated student talent.
  • In addition to C2D2’s All Majors Career Fairs, schools and departments across campus have their own focused career fairs, bringing students and employers together.
  • Prospective employers can educate students directly about their organizations through information sessions, and raise their visibility on campus by becoming a corporate partner.
