How much does a GIS specialist make per year? what are other career options in geography, other than teaching?
I've just started college and am studying a BA degree at the moment.
I've recently done some research about Geographic Information System (GIS) specialists and found that it may be my perfect career.
The problem I have is that I don't have much information about it and about further study and experience I will need. I basically don't know how to go about shaping my career path.
I would be grateful for ANY suggestions!
I'm thinking about going geography major with an option in international development peace and security. What kind of jobs could i get with it? I also am looking at Poli sci which is better?

What types of jobs are created and lost from the use of geothermal energy as an alternative energy source?
My husband has been overseas for 3 months and he has 6 months left. I am not handling this well at all. Right before he left we found out our oldest daughter (just turned 2) has celiac, which puts her on a very restiricted diet. I am having a hard time with it, her GI specialist said that he would write a letter to try and get my husband home. I talked to him about it, but he is skeptical of this woking because there isnt really any non deployable jobs. Any ideas of what we an do?
It's at a university in the evening and it's a year's worth of credits. I already have an economics degree but I don't have a good job. I notice that the GIS jobs with local governments are well-paid and that there is supposed to be an increasing demand for specialists. Does it involve a lot of programming? Would it be hard to do?
I'm thinking of either that or environmental studies. Environmental studies interests me more, but I don't think I could get a job with it.
I wasn't sure where to post this, but anyway...I got really sick in January of this year. My dr. ran lots of tests but couldn't ever find anything wrong with me. By March, I was in so much pain I couldn't hardly get out of bed. Since I had no diagnosis, I didn't qualify for a medical leave of absence, therefore I had no choice but to quit my job. While at a GI specialist's office in mid-March, my pain got so bad he called an ambulance to take me to the ER. The ER dr. sent me to a gynecologist. She pulled my entire medical history to see what tests had been run on me so far. She did an examination and found a mass on one of my ovaries. She also told me it was listed in my file as being found on a CT scan I had in 2004 after a major car accident. My ovary was removed, and I'm in great health now. I just want to know if I have any legal right to sue the dr who found it in 2004 and didn't tell me about it. I know I wouldn't have had to go through all this if it had been removed back then.
Do I need to see a regular family physician or do I go to an internal medicine specialist or a proctologist? I'm very embarrassed to go at all! ( I am having occasional bleeding from the a**s with some large clots when I wipe. No other symptoms or pain, and not due to any sexual activities.) help!
I have three kids. Ages 6 yrs, 3 yrs, and 18 months. Our pediatrician has prescribed Polyethylene Glycol for two of my three kids for long term programs. Polyethylene Glycol, otherwise known as PEG's or MiraLax, is a laxative made from linking longer strands of Ethylene Glycol together. Alone, Ethelyne Glycol is a very toxic chemical. In 2001 the F.D.A passed it's use for ages 17 and up for up to 7 days. Since then, the F.D.A.'s adverse reports have said that PEG's cause numerous issues in children including kidney failure, heart disease, and nueropsychiatric events such as autism, alzheimers, schizophrenia, and dementia. I was never told any of this and the pediatricians still prescribed programs containing over 17 mgs of this poison to my children every day. WITHOUT TESTING TO FIND A DIAGNOSIS. I am extremely angry and seriously considering lawsuits. My 6 yr old is autistic btw. I'm not giving them this chemical again, but, I need to somehow talk the pediatrician into doing his d**n job and finding the problem. Any suggestions?
Point of reference that PEG's are NOT approved for long term use....
Thank you Shea. The symptoms are fecal impaction associated with autism. A huge hurtle for people with ASD's is sensory impairments. My son can't handle a lot of foods and hates water. My daughter was 6 wks old when she was prescribed MiraLax for constipation associated with hard dry stools. She was breastfed and I changed my diet drastically to try to correct the problem.
I am joining the Army and was just looking for suggestions on what type of jobs to look at that transfer well into civilian world. Just looking for suggestions right now and some information i been looking online but i figured i would ask people that may have been in an mos and have some experience. Any help would be well appreciated thanks.
I am planning on enlisting in the military. I am not sure which branch to join. My MOS im choosing is intelligence specialist or CTI or CTR? Any advice would be appreciated.
Geography, and World Issues are pretty much my passion.
I know for sure that I want to study International Studies in university, but I was wondering what jobs would I be able to get with this degree?
I'm really more interested in being an actual psychiatrist, but I can work up to that, I'm sure. However, If I join the military with the intention of being a psychiatric technician, do I need a degree before joining?
I'm asking because I can't afford schooling for ANY career without putting myself in a giant whole of debt. Would the military provide training for a job as a Psychiatric technician? While on that paycheck, I can study to become an actual psychiatrist, or whatever else I want to, ya know?
I'm just about finished with a Geography major and a possible minor in math. I'd like to do an internship sometime soon, but I'd also like to continue on to grad school. I love what I'm studying but it's difficult for most to understand what's out there for Geographers as I don't know 100?yself! Any suggestions on what businesses to go to for internships? Any advice pleeease!
I'm trying to find out the best route, and the quickest yet best quality, to become a nurse practitioner. I'm an RN with an Associate Degree, and have been in the medical field for 29 yrs, since high school.
I'm interested in learning something new, and would like to stay in the medical field despite a partial disability I have. This makes it impossible to continue with physical, or even sedentary nursing, so more autonomy would be great.
If there are any legitimate at home job for an RN, that would be very helpful in the meantime. Any ideas?
I've been Charge nurse in a high acuity med-surg unit in a teaching hospital, and presently Charge in a Surgery/Oncology unit. I also work ENT/Ortho/GI/GU/Oral/Plastics/Derm clinics, and Minor surgery.
I was a certified scrub tech prior. I worked in the OR for 10 yrs. I trained at the best, 'Big Charity' in New Orleans.
Motto: 'See one, do one, teach one' I specialized in Ortho and Neuro, training new staff.
Thanks for input!
For example, at work, I have a hard time understanding how to start a task if they do not give me specific details. It's hard for me to think outside the box, too, and I feel that my job requires me to be creative. How can I improve my comprehension skills (if this is the problem), or should I move on to a different career path?
P.S. I am a GIS Specialist (Geographic Information Systems)
I hate the people in the army. They make life so difficult and im just ready to get out and do something different.
Since Marines have a more dangerous job than Navy or AirForce, do they get more money for college?
