This week, will be the final part of our Georgia Tech resource series specifically focusing on the Georgia Tech Career Center, but do not worry, our following articles will continue to explore other opportunities offered by various groups and centers at Georgia Tech. To close out our Career Center segments, we are emphasizing the main tool that employers can utilize when recruiting Georgia Tech students, CareerBuzz.
What is Career Buzz?
CareerBuzz is Georgia Tech’s specific online career portal open to current students, alumni, faculty, and employers. Similar to other hiring platforms, CareerBuzz allows employers to create an online employer profile where they can upload open job opportunities. These employer profiles will be visible to Georgia Tech students and alumni, and they describe your company’s industry, size, and location. Creating a detailed employer profile is a great way to connect with students who might not have heard of your group or visited your company at a career fair.
After creating an employer profile, you have the capability of uploading open positions onto the platform which students can find through independent searches. For example, if your group is looking to hire an intern for Human Resources during the next academic semester period, Georgia Tech undergraduates majoring in Business Administration will come across your job posting if they search for Human Resource related positions as well. In contrast with other online job boards, CareerBuzz will allow you to customize the job listing for specific Georgia Tech majors, degree types (undergraduate, graduate, or alumni), and years in school (freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior). These unique features make recruiting students significantly easier if your group is targeting a specific age range of students.
