Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD)
Formerly Career Services
The Center for Career and Professional Development is an assessment testing, counseling and resource center that provides career direction, professional development and employment assistance services to Greenville Tech students, prospective students and graduates.
CCPD provides assistance to those who are undecided about a college major or a career goal. One of the most important keys to student retention is having a goal so that classes may be focused on that specific goal.
CCPD provides help in evaluating an individual’s occupational interests, personality, skills and work values by using the TypeFocus Career Planning system. This online system is available to anyone who has access to the internet and who has been given a special code number by CCPD. It can also be taken internally at the CCPD office. Additional assessment instruments are also available.
The employment assistance services are for both GTC graduates and currently enrolled students. Some of the features are
- Job referrals and on-line job search.
- Resume guidelines/critiquing.
- Interview guidelines/mock interviews.
- Lifetime assistance for graduates.
CCPD works by appointment. Office hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Friday. The CCPD office is located in the Administration and Registration Center, Suite 603. CCPD also offers services on the Benson, Brashier and Northwest satellite campuses on a regular rotational basis. For more information or to make an appointment, please call (864) 250-8139.
