ATDC gets a number of requests from startups to recruit and hire Georgia Tech students. This is the first in a series explaining how to go about doing so. This article covers engineering and general recruiting.
The Georgia Tech Career Center has greatly simplified the posting process to attract Georgia Tech students. Just go to CareerBuzz, register, and create a free posting for your company and position(s). Students will see the position when they search the site and if they have set up automatic email notification of certain types of positions. Students then submit resumes on-line for your review.
You need to be very clear about the job in the description, especially the location, salary and job requirements. If you’re seeking a part-time/intern student, emphasize proximity to Tech campus (a big plus for our incubator residents). If there is the possibility for part-time/internship leading to full time employment after graduation, certainly let students know. For all job types, indicate whether or not international students will be considered for visa sponsorship.
You can post any type of position on CareerBuzz including full-time, part-time, and internships. Georgia Tech students typically expect to be paid $50,000 a year for full-time positions and $15 – 20 an hour for part-time and internship positions.
