I’m done with school, now what? I’m new to GIS, what is the best way to find a job? Should I get some kind of GIS certification? What are my education options if I didn’t get a degree in GIS?

According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of GIS and geography-related professionals is expected to increase well beyond the national average. This growth means that an unprecedented number of individuals will be entering the workforce to meet growing geospatial needs. This fast-paced webinar will address some of the common hurdles faced by early career professionals in GIS and offer resources to overcoming these challenges. We will discuss varying paths into a career in GIS, what “GIS jobs” look like, the benefits of higher education and certification, resources for finding jobs in the GIS field, resume, interview and negotiation tips, and the importance of an internship and establishing yourself in a network of GIS professionals.

We will also discuss early career professionalism, impostor syndrome, balancing patience and ambition, and the struggles of transitioning from student life to full-time employment. This webinar is designed to help early career professionals prepare for these challenges, and to aid in-career professionals in understanding what a 2020 job hunt looks like from the new hire perspective.

December 3, 2019 Webinar: How Asset Operators Can Make Better Decisions Without Changing How They Work

Date: Tuesday, December 3, 2019
Time: 2:00PM - 3:00PM EST

View Webinar - Registration Required

Today’s newest pipeline monitoring technologies make it easier to evaluate the health of your assets and make decisions about what to repair and when. They can even help you predict potential problems so that weak points in your pipeline can be addressed long before permanent damage or disaster occurs. Is it worth your time to explore and understand how this is possible? Considering that the right data improves the quality of your decision-making and helps you perform your role with greater ease and confidence each day – the answer is ‘yes.’ Getting there begins with taking a look at how you monitor your assets right now, pinpointing the limitations of this status quo, and understanding the options that are available to free you from these limitations.

November 12, 2019 Webinar: Predictive Analytics: Fact or Science Fiction?

Date: Tuesday, November 12, 2019
Time: 2:00PM - 3:00PM EST

VIEW WEBINAR (REGISTRATION REQUIRED)

As we’ve progressed further into the digital age, we’ve transitioned from big data to advanced analytics; the precursor to Artificial Intelligence (AI). The transformative nature of AI is already being felt in a number of industries, as businesses begin to adopt analytics, automation and housing data in a GIS application. AI and advanced analytics have an especially compelling use case for midstream operators looking to improve the operational efficiency and excellence in their business units. As organizations look to break down traditional silos and make data the cornerstone of managing aging infrastructure, the need for predictive analytics becomes readily apparent. The path to predictive analytics is predicated on the ability to do repeatable scans of an asset or area of interest so the algorithms can start to learn nuances or details. Once a baseline is established, learned anomalies or objects of interest are incorporated into the models so accurate predictions can be delivered. In this webinar, attendees will: • Learn how to implement solutions that deliver a continuous stream of data that tracks changes over time in a GIS application • Get a better understanding of the types of data needed to build predictive models and the methodologies needed to accumulate this data • Discover common use cases implemented in the market today and their impact on pipeline operations
