Default Geology / Earth Science graduates -- can



anyone honestly tell me how the jobs are in this field? I'm a Geology major. But I have heard not so good things (like people with Masters taking more than 6 months to find jobs, low pay, layoffs, etc). I really like Geology, and changing majors will delay me several semesters. I'm kind of worried.

Well, it depends on where you want to live and what you want to do. If you are OK with living in eastern Nevada and would lik eto work in mining, they are DESPERATE for geologists from what I've heard, even offering 50k salaries to people just finnishing their BS. Oil is also a blosseming field, but then you have to live in Wyoming or Houston, usually. And those sallaries can even approach six figures (starting) with an MS.

In big cities, especially in the west, geotech and environmental jobs are very much in demand.

This is what I would do: talk to some of your profs, especially those who do the things you like and/or you get along with. Chances are, they have a friend or a friend of a friend who is in industry that you can talk to about jobs. The biggest problem with most geology jobs is you are not going to find them on Monster or HotJobs. More often, you have to find the jobs by talking to the people who are hiring directly.

Right now, I am looking, and I have one offer with two other good leads. I am trying to work in a limited region, so that is my problem. If I was open to moving, I could have a job in a week.

So, don't change, the market is good and getting better. You will see, things will work out.
