ASLO strives to ensure that the aquatic sciences are adequately represented in trends and reports about the broader geosciences. The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is seeking information from graduating undergraduate or graduate students to better understand workforce trends in the geosciences in the United States. If you are graduating with an undergraduate or graduate degree in Spring 2015, please consider taking the survey. If someone you know meets this criteria, please pass this information along to them.
The American Geosciences Institute is conducting a research study looking at the immediate career plans for students graduating with a geoscience degree, as well as the students’ education, research, and internship experiences leading up to graduation. This will be the first major study or its kind for geoscience majors. With job availability recently becoming a major issue in this country, many with the geoscience community have been wondering about how recently graduating students are faring in the job market, and this survey will begin to answer that question.
For this study, AGI would appreciate your time and attention to AGI’s National Geoscience Student Exit Survey. We would like to better understand your background, experiences in the geosciences, and immediate path after graduation. Your responses will be included with your peers across the United States in order to get a regional and national understanding of the recent geoscience graduate. We want to emphasize that your participation in the survey is completely voluntary and will not affect your future in the workforce. We will not share any personal information you decide to provide without your explicit permission.
This version of the survey is meant for any undergraduate or graduate student finishing their degree and graduating during the Spring 2015 semester.
