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
– Open Data Specialist, Geospatial Scientist
– GIS and Asset Management Coordinator at Town of Drayton Valley
– Geomatics Services Supervisor at Town of Cochrane
– 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.
