I earned my M.S. degree in December 2008, and have since sent out over 350 resumes to companies within the oil and gas industry as well as the environmental consulting industry, with minimal luck. My background is in general geology, with an emphasis in sedimentary geology, paleoecology and paleontology. I have good grades (Grade Point Average of 4.0 out of 4.0 for 58 graduate credits), am a quick learner, possess strong analytical and writing skills, an attention to detail, a love for field and lab work and an eagerness to learn.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. My preferences for location include OH, NC, SC, and TX, although I am certainly willing to relocate nearly anywhere for the right career.
