Thanks to Dr. Krol in the Earth Sciences Department for bringing this job opening to our attention. It is for a cartographer to work at the USGS, which employs a lot of geographers and geologists, among other scientists. Although this particular position, at the GS-11 level, is probably not suitable for most new graduates, some of our alumni from recent years are most certainly qualified.
This position announcement should be studied by anybody interested in federal employment, because it provides insight into how one can gain relevant credentials and approach this kind of career. Also, it may be very useful to browse the USGS site for positions at other levels, particularly GS-09, which are more suitable for new graduates.
