Career resources

Connecting students with the right career path

Students with an interest in I.T., geography, maths, design and the outdoors may not realise that their interests align very well with future professions in the geospatial industries.

Excitingly, with access to the right information, finding their way to the career path that’s perfect for them is easy.

That’s where our career resources come into play. Secondary school students in Queensland will find them illuminating, instructive and inspirational. As a career advisor, you can help connect these interested students with a study path they might not otherwise knew existed.

Best of all, these geospatial science career resources are absolutely free. You can order yours below.

What geospatial science offers

Considering it is something that not many people have heard of, geospatial science sure does have a big impact on our day-to-day lives.

For students looking for a career path that’s right for them, the field is more than a fascinating area to study. Not only is it a opportunity to produce location-based data and intelligence that helps shape the world – there are also high rates of employment upon graduation, along with strong starting salaries.

On top of the career resources you can request for free below, you and your students can find a lot of information on how geospatial science works as a field of study and as a career option while reading this website. Here is a smart place to start.

Order your free resources

It always pays to have resources on hand, ready for your students if they should ever request them.

Here’s your opportunity to stock up on complimentary printed resources – we’ll even post them through to your careers office free of charge. In the section below, please select the resources you would like to order, and how many you would like of each.

Looking for further resources? Take a look at She Maps

There are a number of fantastic organisations that promote geospatial science and She Maps is definitely leading the pack.

Based in Queensland, She Maps has a particular focus on promoting STEM subjects and the spatial field to females. With women only occupying 27% of all STEM roles in the country, there is a revolution underway to encourage more female students towards these fields of study.

On their website, you will learn how She Maps is supporting teachers in the classroom with educational programs that put the focus on STEM subjects by making them more engaging for students in primary and secondary schools. That means in-school drone presentations and professional development opportunities for teachers.

You can read an article on our blog all about the work that Karen Joyce and the She Maps team take on, and you can click through to their website to find out more. You can even receive the free poster series, detailed here!

Show students what A Day in the Life of a Geospatial Scientist is like

In concert with She Maps, Geospatial Science has produced a video series that has real educational outcomes for students.

A Day in the Life of a Geospatial Scientist follows She Maps’ Karen on her 2019 week-long trip to Heron Island. It unpacks what her field studies were about, how a geospatial scientist goes about preparing and execution a project like this, and what the work environment for people in this job can look like.

Two teacher support videos were also produced – check them out!

You can find the full video series on our website. To find out more about the web series, you can check out our blog on the subject here.
