In recent weeks I’ve talked to a number of second semester seniors about GIS job options. I’m hoping at some point to write a blog post with links to GIS job search sites and other resources, but for now I’m just going to pass along job listings as I see them.
I just got an e-mail from Jon Caris, the GIS Specialist at Smith College in Northampton, MA saying that Smith is looking to hire a new or recent college graduate (within 3 years) for the brand new Post-Baccalaureate Spatial Analysis Fellow position. Start date is July 2012 – direct link to the posting can be found here. This position is ideal for a student hoping to gain additional GIS experience before looking for a permanent job, or as a bridge before graduate school. Duties are similar to what the team of GIS Student Assistants do at Bucknell and include:
- Data Documentation, Maintenance, and Acquisition
- Equipment and Software Maintenance
- Class & Individual Support
- Administrative Support
If this sounds interesting to you please talk to me. Jon is doing a whole bunch of really innovative things with GIS at Smith and would be an incredible mentor to work with!
