Post-secondary geographic education provides instruction in theories, methods, applications, techniques, and skills that can lead to many different professional pathways. However, recent research suggests that many students who are well educated and successful in college are not necessarily well prepared to find jobs or to articulate their qualifications to potential employers.
This panel discussion will explore how departments, programs, and instructors can enhance curricula and provide learning experiences to boost students' employability and raise their awareness of the diverse career options available to geographers and geoscientists. Panelists include faculty, researchers, and academic advisers who will discuss their experiences in providing careers-oriented educational opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students.
The panel will also explore cross-sector and interdisciplinary professional development issues and ideas for strengthening linkages between employers and academic geography programs. Time will be reserved to address questions and comments from members of the audience.
