About Georgia Career Information System

The Georgia Career Information Center operates the Georgia Career Information System (GCIS). Working with educational and labor market professionals, GCIS contains assessments, explorations, and search strategies as well as the most comprehensive and accurate state and national occupational and educational information. In addition to career management tools for individuals, tools are available to assist administrators.

GCIS provides Georgia’s students and adult learners with vital career information.

GCIS is used in Georgia's elementary, middle, and high schools; colleges and universities; technical colleges; Employment Service offices; Rehabilitation Services offices; Department of Labor offices; Department of Family and Children Services offices; Department of Juvenile Justice; and public libraries.

This year Georgians will access GCIS at more than 1,400 sites throughout the state.
