Hi there,So I graduated this past May 2019 from George Mason University with BS in Geography. I currently reside in Northern Virginia or DC Metro Area. I know there are lots of technical jobs and industries out here but for last few months I have been struggling finding any GIS job positions even apprentice or internship level. Unfortunately most companies for example Leidos require you to have TS/SCI clearance level which I don't have because I never had one before even for apprentice positions...
Add a Label: Type a Job, Company, Location and/or Other in the boxes below (i.e. chef, Hilton Hotel, and Orlando, FL) and click "Search". You may only add one job, company, and location label per search, but multiple "other" labels.
Delete a Label: You can remove "Other" labels one at a time by clicking the "x" next to the name. Or, remove all the filters at once by clicking "Clear all labels".
I received a background report for myself from GIS. But they also sent me the name, address, case #, etc from another person. It tells what job they tried to apply to and there reason for not being hired.What should I do at this point? I fear they may have released personal information about me to someone else.Thanks!
Smarten up, pal. GIS industry is full of so-called analysts / specialists educated by those six-month or one-year training programs. There is no room for people with high degrees. I've spent years to do serious study focusing on geodesy, surveying, programming, math, and spatial analysis. The fact, however is that lots of employers believe GIS just means a software package and piling layers up.

I will be moving to Washington in December (which is probably irrelevant) and I'm using what little on the job experience I have in GIS (spatial analysis, utility & public works) as a way to get into resource management/conservation or environmental planning. I have a BS in enviro-resource studies and a minor in plant & soil science but would like to expand my GIS background while still staying within the realm of enviro/resource planning and conservation. Where do I start?
