Geosciences Overview

Profiles of Geoscientists are available on this site to provide insight into the activities, educational preparation, and daily challenges of individuals working in the geosciences.  Profiles include students, those just starting their career, and those who have been working for decades.  They cover a variety of career paths and educational backgrounds.  All offer PDF files profiling the individual and including an interview.  While these are useful tools for glimpsing into the working lives of geoscientists, it may also be helpful to network with professionals who can provide even more input, or answer your specific questions.  Bear in mind that these profiles are simply snapshots of geoscientists at one point in their career.  It is likely that these people have moved on to other jobs, perhaps expanded their education, or made other changes since the profile was created.  These individuals are not available for individual contact, but have provided candid descriptions of their education, work experiences, and career paths.  You may select a profile by name, job function, company, or geography, and may view online or download a PDF file.

If you are a geoscientist or a student currently studying geoscience, and would be interested in contributing a profile to this site, please download and complete a geoscientist or student profile form.  Thank you!
