What is the Career Services Plan? The plan is guidelines used to mandate many of the functions performed by Career Services at Ogeechee Tech to include: the Quarterly Exit/Leavers/Graduate Report, Instructor Graduate Employment Follow-up Forms, End-of-Year Graduate Report, seminars provided by Career Services, Placement Reports, etc.
Codes used to identify graduate employment status, and leaver employment and reason codes in Banner–these codes are used to clear and update students on the Quarterly Exit/Leavers/Graduate Report and the End-of-Year Graduate Report.
It’s important that the student is asked the proper questions when being contacted in order to receive the information needed to properly code them in Banner–things to consider: is the student a High School Student, are they attending another school or OTC, do they plan to attend another school in the near future, have they found employment, is employment in their field of study, if not currently employed have they been employed anywhere since graduation, are they unable to work–why, do they have medical problems or family problems (child care, etc.) that keeps them from working, are they looking for work, were they seeking full-time employment upon graduation, etc. In other words there’s a lot more to obtaining a good placement status than…“Are you employed?–yes or no”.
