Cosponsors: American Institute of Professional Geologists Foundation; Stantec Inc.; Arizona Geological Society


This one-day workshop is intended to help students successfully transition from the classroom into the workforce and to guide both students and young professionals as they start careers as geologists. Participants will learn about the importance of balancing life and work demands, expectations of employers, how to navigate the hiring process, what techniques can be used to stand out as a candidate, how to prepare a CV, and strategies for professional development. Presenters from industry will share their knowledge and experiences as employers, plus speak about their own career paths. We will have a flash-mentoring session that will allow students to interact with a mentor in multiple, small group settings.

Register for the Short Course $20 USD.
(Please note that there is an additional $45 fee if not registered for the GSA conference)
