Important Writing Skills for Careers in the Environmental Industry

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

This webinar will provide insight into the technical writing skills that are needed by geoscience students pursuing careers in the environmental consulting industry. Speakers will discuss skills that are developed during undergraduate or graduate academic training, types of written products that are developed by geoscientists in the environmental consulting industry, training and professional development opportunities for improving and expanding writing skills and advice for students on how to acquire the needed writing skills as they prepare for and pursue their career path.

This webinar will:

  • Explore the types of written products developed in the environmental consulting industry
  • Feature advice for students on how to acquire the necessary skills as they prepare for entry into this sector
  • Explore how industry and academic departments could work together to help prepare students

Our speakers are:

  • Mike Lawless – Principal/Vice President, Environmental Division Manager, Draper Aden Associates
  • Brandy Barnes, Staff Geologist, Draper Aden Associates

Student and Faculty Employment Attitudes in the Geosciences, 2006

Friday, July 28, 2006

A growing portion of decision makers in academia, private industry, and government are concerned about shortages in the science, engineering, and technology (SET) workforce. This heightened awareness is in part to several reports released in the last year looking at that nation’s competitiveness in the global market. For years, the geosciences have been aware of the need to increase the number of students entering the pipeline, but the recent upswing in the world’s commodities market and impending retirement of a generation of geoscientists has increased this pressure.

Status Report on Geoscience Summer Field Camps, 2006

Monday, June 18, 2007

Field camp has traditionally served as a central part of undergraduate geoscience curricula, but this tradition appears to be disappearing. There are several reasons for the decline in the number of departments offering traditional summer field camp experiences, including the rising costs of liability insurance for colleges and universities to run such programs and the changing face of geoscience departments in smaller schools that are combining forces with geography and environmental science programs.

Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2016

Friday, August 26, 2016

The Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2016 report is based on original data collected by AGI as well as from federal data sources, professional membership organizations, and industry. The report integrates all of these various data sources into a comprehensive view of the human and economic parameters of the geosciences, including supply and training of new students, workforce demographics and employment projections, to trends in geosciences research funding and economic indicators.

Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2014

Thursday, May 8, 2014

The Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2014 report is based on original data collected by AGI as well as from federal data sources, professional membership organizations, and industry. The report integrates all of these various data sources into a comprehensive view of the human and economic parameters of the geosciences, including supply and training of new students, workforce demographics and employment projections, to trends in geosciences research funding and economic indicators.

Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2011

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

The "Status of the Geoscience Workforce" report provides a comprehensive benchmark of the geoscience profession. The report is based on original data collected by the American Geological Institute as well as from existing data from federal data sources, professional membership organizations, and industry data sources. The report synthesizes all available data for the geosciences, from the supply and training of new students, to workforce demographics and employment projections, to trends in geoscience research funding and economic indicators.

Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2009

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

According to the federal government, science and technology has been responsible for more than 50% of the economic growth in the U.S. since the end of World War II. This growth was driven by increased investment in science and technology fields undertaken in the post‐war, space‐race, and cold war years, building not only the human capital but also the institutional frameworks to sustain the technical capacity of the U.S. economy in the face of ever‐changing threats.
