I recently gave a presentation focused on providing guidelines for those who are seeking a career in GIS or a related career that will include GIS in some significant way (such as in city planning, wildlife biology, health informatics, and so on), and have posted it here. The guidelines includes strategies on networking, resumes vs. CVs, interviewing, writing a cover letter, online presence, creating a storymap of your CV, and much more. I am grateful to my colleague Nick Kelch at Esri for some of his words of wisdom and slides as I prepared this presentation. In the presentation, I include links to videos and other presentations I have created on this topic. I am very excited about the future for anyone involved with geospatial technology, as it becomes a fundamental part of 21sdt Century decision making.
I hope it is helpful and I look forward to your feedback.
