Coming Soon!  GIS Careers and Concepts Membership Website
As Justin Holman recently penned in his article "How to Launch a GIS Career", when it comes to developing your career in GIS "No one is going to give you a chance.  You have to make it happen."  This is true in any industry and GIS is no exception.  New graduates and early career professionals need to hear this kind of advice.  But it's not enough to simply tell people to suck it up or move on.  In addition to the 'get up and go' attitude these aspiring GIS professionals also need the resources to help them succeed.   

In September we will launch our new GIS Careers and Concepts Membership Website designed to provide these resources. This will be an online enrollment based GIS community that caters to those interested in pusuing GIS as a career such as the student/career change/early career person as well as existing GIS professionals. Academia is not necessarily going to provide GIS education and career guidance. This online community will do just that by providing a plethora of topics geared to assist and direct people on a rewarding career in GIS.

The topics included in our new membership website will include:
  • Introductory training materialsTraining opportunities and courses
  • University program listings
  • Suggested individual GIS career path information 
  • Job listings and internship opportunities
  • Resume assistance
  • Interviews with industry professionals to describe their current position and how they achieved their career goals
  • Relevant GIS articles
  • GIS blog posts
  • Discussion boards
  • Books and other materials
  • Q/A sessions with current GIS professionals 

More information on this new membership website will be provided in the coming weeks and months.
