As a geographer, you are prepared to accept employment opportunities in a number of fields. Geographers often find it necessary to advertise their geospatial and technological skills. Typical employers include environmental consulting and engineering firms, market/demographic consultants, real estate firms, retail firms, non-governmental organizations, and local, state, and federal government agencies. Students who attend graduate school typically pursue studies in physical geography, environmental science, human geography, or GIS.
Recent graduates have obtained employment with government agencies such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Census Bureau; non-governmental organizations like Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper and The Senase Project; private firms like Pictometry/EagleView, Independent Health, Travelers Insurance, Watsons Candies, CSX Railroad, and WMTM-TV; and environmental consulting and engineering firms including Ecology and Environment, Inc., Sienna Environmental Technologies, Gomez and Sullivan Engineers, and Wendel Architects & Engineers.
