Whether you're looking for your first job, considering graduate school, or changing careers, the advice of a mentor can help prepare you for success in today's competitive job market. The AAG has assembled a team of experienced geography professionals, faculty members, and advanced students to provide one-on-one and small-group consultation about careers in a variety of industries and employment sectors. Topics for discussion might include creating resumes and cover letters that will grab an employer's attention, finding jobs where you can put your geography skills and training to work, choosing a graduate program, developing your personal and professional networks, long-term career planning, and more. Career Mentoring sessions will take place April 6-9, each morning from 11:10 a.m.-12:25 p.m. (except Tuesday, 11:50 a.m.-1:05 p.m.) in Mineral Hall B/C, Third Floor, Hyatt.
