GIS Careers

I just came back from doing a delightful presentation on GIS and Careers, what to watch for, how to develop a career, etc. to an enthusiatic group of interns. I've uploaded the presentation below so be sure to take a look at it. It has a lot of information that would be useful for both new GIS professionals and for those that have been in the field for longer.

Career Development - GIS

I was asked to do a presentation on GIS and careers, etc. for a group of interns. Having never done this type of a presentation before, I wanted to make sure not to bore them to death and to include content that would allow them to know what's happening in the industry. I've decided to focus more on the GIS industry, who to follow, what to read and how to keep skills updated instead of "how to find a job" or "what's required in a GIS job".

I look forward to posting how this disucssion goes. I've compiled a list of slides that I'll post next week after the presentation.

I'm still here - slowly down for the summer

The summer months have triggered my extreme laziness. I will try to keep updating as regularly as possible but I hope to get back into full force in September.

Thanks for dropping by!
