Present conditions in the industry are resulting in increasing competition for jobs and consulting opportunities. Geoscientists are facing career hurdles that are reminiscent for some and new for others.
At times like these, even a small advantage can assist their career future.
Our Member Career Services Committee, now more than ever, wants AAPG to be your “Career Partner for Life.”
AAPG is ready to assist its members by offering the exclusive Member Registry Service.
Found through the AAPG homepage under the Career tab, this searchable electronic database allows you to showcase your expertise and allows our members an international, public platform to feature his/her individual area of professional expertise and years of experience.
Members are able to list all of their qualifications for review by potential clients and market themselves for their dream job – or, just build valuable networks of colleagues to meet with at meetings and reach out to when your current employer is in search of like-minded quality geoscientists.
It’s a great way to foster scientific exchange, and an excellent way to seek out new colleagues in the areas and interests you care most about.
Sign up today to be part of this influential global network of professional colleagues and friends.
Another great way to network and get involved with other geoscientists in AAPG is to join a committee.
(Soon you also may want to join one of the new Technical Information Groups – TIGs – or Science Information Groups – SIGs – that will be forming in AAPG soon. In fact, if you have an idea for a TIG or SIG, now’s the time to let AAPG President Randi Martinsen know about it.)
Regarding committees: Your input is definitely needed and valued, and any member of AAPG may ask to join a committee by contacting the committee’s chairs.
The term of service is usually three years starting at the beginning of the fiscal year, July 1, and is subject to AAPG president’s approval.
The list of all of the committees is below – or go to the AAPG committee website page, at www.aapg.org/about/aapg/overview/committees.
