Friday, April 14th  |   12:00 – 5:00pm   |   Morgan Library Event Hall

This workshop will provide graduate students with an introduction to the soft-skills of ‘spatial analysis,’ and to the technical aspects of GIS. Students will discover how geospatial skills can have a multiplying and complementary effect on the work they are undertaking within their disciplinary home, and render them more competitive for opportunities in diverse career areas.

  •  Introduce graduate students to how spatial analysis and GIS skills, techniques, and tools are currently used in a variety of workplaces (this will include a hands-on introduction to GIS)
  • Explain how to build upon these basic skills at CSU
  • Provide examples of how to highlight these skills in a CV, resume, or during a job interview

Presented by the Geospatial Centroid, with support of a grant from the CSU Graduate School.
