    GIS online certificates

    I have a bachelors degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont and I am considering getting a masters in Regional Planning. I would love to get some relevant experience beforehand, GIS certificate programs help? I am struggling to find relevant (or any) employment and have simply been sending emails to local planning boards and consultants. Basically would an online GIS certificate greatly improve my chances at landing a job or is it a waste of money?

    Sure....

    Any additional skills like being able to conduct GIS business will help you get a job.
