Panel: Coming Into Alberta Geospatial Industry

Our group is lucky to have a few people who do, or have done, hiring for various roles, including geospatial roles, in Alberta. They’ve offered to share some of their thoughts and insights:

– The market – what jobs, who’s hiring, what’s the competition?
– Finding opportunities – Your network/portfolio, social media
– Landing the job – Resume / Interview tips
– The real world – what will the job probably look like, day to day

Panelists:
Tanya Yeomans
– Open Data Specialist, Geospatial Scientist
Dare Adeyemi
– GIS and Asset Management Coordinator at Town of Drayton Valley
Stefan Price
– Geomatics Services Supervisor at Town of Cochrane
Kemi Mebude
– GIS Analyst II at Town of Beumont

This Monthly Chapter event is open to all. Feel free to bring your topics, projects, or presentations.

Some suggestions from the chapter for presentations include:
– Show us your side hustle
– Bring us your problems ( stuff you’re working on and issues )
– teach something new ( OS Geo projects or other ).

Please check out the Alberta Chapter WIKI page – https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Alberta_Chapter – to join the mailing list and contribute to the conversation.

Big thanks to Assembly Coworking Space for providing the venue ( even though we’re all at home right now).
