OpenGeo Career Panels

November 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

A global coalition of partners invites students and young professionals to participate in a series of virtual career panels. Both career panels will focus on how professionals use OSM in their work. Our first panel will focus on Government and NGOs, while the second will focus on the private sector. We encourage you to share this invite with your network.

Each panel will be 1 hour in length with an additional 15 minutes allotted to Q & As. We will use a single Zoom link, so if you are interested in joining us for only part of the event, please log in at the appropriate time using the agenda below. Please make sure to RSVP as we’ll be sending a Zoom link using this Eventbrite registration list ahead of the event.
