Hi all, i am looking for some assistance or recommendations for GIS job openings. i presently have about 2 years experience working as a GIS intern/teaching assistant. During my last year in undergraduate school and for most of my graduate program, I worked extensively with ArcGIS desktop products such as ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcGIS Server/Flex  I have worked with developing ARCSDE databases for 1 year and publishing web mapping applications via ArcGIS Server Manager.  I worked extensively with spatial and tabular databases in an enterprise environment using variety of tools, relational database management interfaces, and structured query languages (SQL) and GIS software.  I used ArcMap and �??ERDAS imagine�?? to work with different satellite images, editing, manipulating and deriving critical information from data obtained.  I am able to perform batch processing functions, calling geographic tools and customizing user interfaces by writing script codes using python. I also learned spatial analysis, computer cartography, spatial statistics, feature editing and digitizing. Data collection using mapping grade global positioning systems and differential correction, editing and exporting the GPS data into a GIS form was also learned. I learned about field research and environmental impact assessment while working as an intern at my undergraduate college.

Direct responses or emails on recommendations are welcome. Thanks.
