An update on a future hangout with James Fee. Coinciding with GIS Day, James and the WeoGeo crew will be devoting their weekly hangout to the topic of Careers in GIS


The Geospatial industry is evolving rapidly these days, and it can be difficult to get your bearings and plan your career wisely...

In honor of GIS Day (Nov. 14th), James Fee is hosting a special Google+ HangoutOnAir: “Geospatial Career Panel 2012: Navigating the Field.” It will start at 10am PST (1pm EDT).  We have three amazing panelists lined up to answer viewer questions about the GIS and geospatial job market, and how best to prepare for it.

  • David Dibiase, Director of Education for Esri's Industry Solutions Division, has years of experience in GIS education, and will represent the academic sector and Esri.
  • Kenny Miller, President Elect of NSGIC (National States Geographic Information Council) and  Maryland's Deputy Geographic Information Officer, will provide insights into public sector GIS
  • Jessica Touchard, Senior Recruiter with GeoSearch, Inc., will provide us with an overarching view of GIS jobs in the private sector.
After introductions and opening statements from each panelist, the show will be audience driven.  Viewers will be able to submit and vote-up questions in Google Moderator; you can add your own here.  During the Hangout, we will also keep an eye on  viewer comments in the IRC (instant messaging) channel, #hwjf on freenode.net. If you can’t make the live show, no worries; it will be recorded and posted at www.weogeo.com/video/.

This event should be especially helpful for students and young professionals; please share this announcement or post this flier to help spread the word. 

Hangouts with James Fee is presented by WeoGeo and its chief evangelist, James Fee. He’s been involved with the Geospatial community for almost 20 years and has one of the most widely read geospatial blogs around.  He is also the founder and curator of Planet Geospatial, an aggregator for geo-blogs.
