Geoscience Degrees and Careers

"Succeeding... is all about making yourself indispensable. Find the tasks that need to be done but that no one else is willing to do, and volunteer to get them done. If you take ownership of them and do them well, within 6 months we won't remember how we got along without you."
- Bill Brinker, HDR Engineering

The information below can help students determine the degree they need to achieve to reach the kind of job they want. The association of particular degrees and jobs are drawn from the experience of project leadership and participants. Bear in mind that different employers have different necessary qualifications and that labor force variations can lead to someone with a more advanced degree getting a job normally filled by someone with a less advanced degree.
