THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – The job market may be bleak. But for some graduating college students it's not a problem at all.

Southwest Georgia Technical College officials say 99% of their students found jobs shortly after graduating last year.

Southwest Georgia had the highest placement rate among technical colleges in Georgia.

And officials say their graduates don't just get a job after school, they begin careers in their related field of study.

"Our staff as well as our faculty work very closely with the community. Everybody has their ears out for what is needed and when we recognize a need or a large industry comes to us with a need, we make sure we have the programs they need to have good employees," explains Jeanine Long, the director of Career Placement & Development at SWGTC.

Officials are looking forward to winter and spring term graduation in July so they can begin working on updated placement figures.
