The State of Georgia has launched Team Georgia Careers, a fully automated, robust and user-friendly recruiting and onboarding careers website, powered by Taleo. Team Georgia Careers is an important statewide talent management solution for recruiting and retaining talented employees who will handle the business of State government, and offers many benefits for both job seekers and State recruiters.
Current and prospective employees will find it easier to search open positions, upload resumes and required materials, track their application throughout the recruiting and hiring process, and submit employment forms after accepting a job offer. Improved automation of current recruiting and onboarding processes means employers can quickly find, interview and hire job candidates.
In addition to this careers website, Georgia’s state government, or “Team Georgia,” offers traditional and unique career and development opportunities to applicants. Professional development, specialized training, coaching and mentoring opportunities, succession planning, tuition assistance for specialized jobs within specific organizations, and cross-agency team stretch assignments are all career-enhancement programs offered by the State.
Unique jobs are available throughout the state that are only available to State employees. For example, individuals who live in Georgia and aspire to have a career in forensic science can only gain that experience with the State Crime Lab. Other unique positions include park rangers with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, special agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations, environmental health and food service inspectors with the Georgia Department of Public Health, child protective services caseworkers with Georgia’s Division of Family and Children Services, pesticide control inspectors for the State Agriculture Laboratory, environmental protection agents with the Environmental Protection Division and various positions with the State Elections Commission, and many others.
We are excited about this initiative and the ability to improve employment services offered the State of Georgia!!
