Career Preparation

Get one-on-one support and mentoring at HSB

Technical proficiency, business savvy and clever problem-solving: Hammack students master the skills that matter most to employers. And with the one-on-one support and mentoring that are just part of every day life at Oglethorpe, landing that all-important first job is a sure thing.

In Oglethorpe’s small and close-knit community, faculty mentorship helps each student thrive. Your professors won’t just know your name; they’ll know your passions, goals and aspirations. And with Hammack’s connections to the biggest wave-makers in the Atlanta business community (think Coca-Cola, UPS, Porsche), your professors will also know who you need to know to achieve your dreams.

The Oglethorpe Career Development office is a one-of-a-kind, one-stop-shop for internship and job hunting. Conduct self-assessment and identify your core strengths and weaknesses so you can choose the career path that suits you best. Learn how to search most effectively for internships and jobs. Get advice on your resume and cover letter. Meet with potential employers to explore your options at one of the many events hosted by Career Development throughout the year. Even practice for that very first interview.

Proof that it works: recent Oglethorpe business grads are now successfully employed at organizations such as Amazon, Atlanta Hawks, Deloitte, DHL, Ernst & Young, Harley Davidson, Insight Global, Newell Brands, Porsche and UPS.
