Ladies Night Out

Teresa Warner is pursuing a three-fold nontraditional career path in welding, machine tool technology and industrial systems technology at Altamaha Technical College. Here, she shows off her welding skills during class. Nontraditional career options for women will be explored at the College’s first “Ladies Night Out” Monday, March 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Golden Isles Campus at the Golden Isles Career Academy in Brunswick. 

(March 5, 2013) – Women are considered nontraditional employees in the male-dominated career fields of automotive technology, HVAC, welding, machine tool technology… the list goes on. Altamaha Technical College invites women to explore the many opportunities in a nontraditional career field, and learn how a job in these fields could provide a lucrative and satisfying life’s pursuit.

Join Altamaha Technical College at the first “Ladies Night Out: Explore a Nontraditional Career” Monday, March 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Golden Isles Campus at the Golden Isles Career Academy in Brunswick. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served and professional child care will be provided. The event will be held in Room 115. Door prizes will also be drawn, beginning at 6 p.m.

It’s no longer a “man’s world” in these fields as Altamaha Technical College Automotive Technology Instructor Scott Traficante explains.

“Women actually have the greatest opportunities in this field today, not only because there is such a shortage of qualified women in the field but because the high demand for computer and computer diagnostic skills is something that women have statistically shown higher than average abilities in. Most dealers will jump at the chance to hire a qualified, top-notch female diagnostic technician,” said Traficante.

Altamaha Technical College will feature guest speakers in automotive technology, commercial truck driving, industrial systems technology, welding and culinary arts. The event will also feature technical college program opportunities in HVAC, Criminal Justice and Computer Information Systems.

Financial Aid counselors will be present to discuss scholarship, grant and tuition assistance opportunities. The $24 application fee to Altamaha Technical College will be waived the night of the event.

Representatives from the Georgia Department of Labor will also be on hand to answer questions about their potential job opportunities and available resources.  Information on additional resource opportunities concerning tuition assistance, childcare, transportation, and scholarships will be available.
