Default Clarkesville, Ga area?

Yes another day, another job search

How is the area around Clarkesville, GA? I know I have been through there several times but have never taken a good look around. I may be changing my college selection and going with North Georgia Techincal College in Clarkesville.

Any suggestions?

Glenn - That is a great place to live! Small town, good fishing and decent hunting close by, real close to Woody's shop

Given the choice of Clarksville or Snellville, move to Clarksville!

Listen to the old Stanley Brothers tune "How Mountain Gals Can Love"!

Thanks fellas! I pretty much knew it was good town cause it is north of "Hotlanta"!

Now if I can land a job in that area I will be set. Almost seem to be better oppurtunity in that area than south Georgia.

Will see....

Glenn,

I spoke with one of my former high school teachers , who also taught at NGT. He said the boards at NGT were full of job offers in the heating and air field. Starting out at 45,000+ per year, which is very good money in this area. He said so many kids were going to college that the techs were in high demand in most any field.
Good luck.

Come on up, it's a great place to live if you like the small town feel. If I can help, give me a call. I'll PM the number.

Glenn,

When you get to NGT go to their Photography School Department, Richard Smith is the dept head/teacher/golfer all-around good guy. Kenny Simmons another good guy hunter/fly fisherman,may still be their teaching photography but he may have left by now.

Richard knows the area very well. Kenny's mom house is on the "Soque River" (not sure on the spelling but a great river near by) They feed the trout super-growing-bigguns feed and they some fish as big as my THIGH! Kenny has guided some & can show you around as well.

If you get a chance to talk to Richard or Kenny tell them Kenneth from Photo Barn sent you.

Kenneth aka Razorback
