Defining Geospatial Industry Workforce Demand

    May 16, 2006

Phase 1 of the GITA/AAG Department of Labor High Growth Grant, Defining and Communicating Geospatial Technology Industry Workforce Demand is now completed and waiting for your feedback.

The grant comes as a result of U.S. Department of Labor’s High Growth Job Training Initiative, a collaborative effort to help team people with the jobs that are needed. The initiative is a strategic effort to prepare workers to take advantage of new and increasing job opportunities in high-growth, high-demand, and economically vital sectors of the American economy.

View the report and please provide your feedback – See here. Also available is a summary report on commonly used geospatial job titles. It turns out the top buzzwords in geospatial career posting are “geospatial”, “spatial”, and obviously, “GIS”.

Titles are typically titled with a label that implies the level of expertice… these would generally fall into the category of technician, analyst, specialist, and manager… oh, speaking of jobs, let me provide you with a reminder that we have loads of GIS career postings in our career Center at GISuser (which was used in the report’s analysis) and remember that posting is always free.
