I’m done with school, now what? I’m new to GIS, what is the best way to find a job? Should I get some kind of GIS certification? What are my education options if I didn’t get a degree in GIS?

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of GIS and geography-related professionals is expected to increase well beyond the national average. This growth means that an unprecedented number of individuals will be entering the workforce to meet growing geospatial needs. This fast-paced webinar will address some of the common hurdles faced by early career professionals in GIS and offer resources to overcoming these challenges. We will discuss varying paths into a career in GIS, what “GIS jobs” look like, the benefits of higher education and certification, resources for finding jobs in the GIS field, resume, interview and negotiation tips, and the importance of an internship and establishing yourself in a network of GIS professionals.

We will also discuss early career professionalism, impostor syndrome, balancing patience and ambition, and the struggles of transitioning from student life to full-time employment. This webinar is designed to help early career professionals prepare for these challenges, and to aid in-career professionals in understanding what a 2020 job hunt looks like from the new hire perspective.
