Nurses. Mathematicians. Your local mom-and-pop shop owner. Nowadays, college is a requirement not many can afford to sidestep, regardless of the career path they choose. But with more and more employers looking for education and real-world experience, traditional classroom training alone no longer helps you make the cut.

So where can you get the right balance of experience and education? Gwinnett Technical College is an option.

First-time students or those looking to switch up career paths can benefit from gaining a healthy dosage of specialized knowledge and real-world experience from Gwinnett Tech so the moment you set foot in the workforce, you’re armed with the skills and knowledge you need to be a productive, instrumental asset.

In fact, the College recognizes the importance of hands-on experience through its Launch Pointe program, which affords students the opportunity to muddy their hands in the playing field before they even swing through industry doors toward a fruitful career.

Elizabeth Tallent, a student in the College’s Mercedes-Benz Automotive Program, can speak to the program’s benefits.

“When I saw this program,” Tallent says, “I wanted to be a part of it. I have learned so much being around the knowledgeable technicians there in order to reach my end goal as a certified Mercedes-Benz Technician.”
