Hi. This is my first post on this website even though I have been reading for a long time now. I really enjoy the content on this website, everyone is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about a wide variety of topics.
I am currently a senior graduating in May from the University of Connecticut with a bachelors degree in geography and minor in Geographic Information Systems. Over the few weeks I have been at school since winter break I have been researching job opportunities across the state of Connecticut and beyond. I have been working retail during my entire college career to save what I can for loans and such and have had one internship at a town planning and zoning office. I hope to get a job after college to pay some bills but a masters degree is a definite for my future.
I have a question:
With only a bachelors degree in geography and minor is GIS what should I expect to find or what should I really be looking for in a job and where (public/private)? Am I really going to find anything with out having a masters degree or do I need one to even start.
Does anyone have any insight or advice? I searched but did not have great success but if anyone knows any threads I should look at please let me know.
Thanks for all of your responses, Eric
