ABOUT TEXAS A&M GIS DAY

GIS Day, the annual worldwide salute to geospatial technology and its power to transform and enhance lives, is going to be extra "spatial" this year in Aggieland, where the Texas A&M celebration, one of the world's largest, is expanding to encompass three event-packed days, November 16-18, 2020.

Organizing Committee

GIS Day 2020 would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of a group of individuals sharing a deep passion and love for everything-GIS. We'd like to extend a very special thanks to everyone who has been involved in the planning and the making of GIS Day.

GIS Resume Bank

The TAMU GIS Day Committee has unique and personal relationships with many employers in the fields of Geography, Geographic Information Science & Technology (GIST), and the broader Geospatial Industry. These employers are actively seeking to recruit undergraduate, graduate, and former students from Texas A&M University to fill full time and internship roles.

In 2018, the TAMU GIS Day Committee organized the first TAMU GIS Resume Bank to make sure that our current and former students receive the highest number of resume reviews by the highest number of potential employers. This resource is provided to companies and organizations who request access to Texas A&M's best GIS students from across the university (there are no less than three TAMU Colleges and Departments which offer GIS training).

Participation

Any current or former student at TAMU is eligible to add her or his resume to our GIS Resume Bank.

Participation in this initiative is voluntary on the part of our students. No student will be required to add her or his resume to the GIS Resume Bank as a condition for graduation or grades in a course. A student's optional contribution of her or his resume into the GIS Resume Bank will be used to help her/him/them find an internship or full time position. Accordingly, any information voluntarily provided by a student into this system will be shared with potential employers on their behalf as requested by employers.

Student Resume Inclusion Criteria

Quality standards will apply. If your resume does not reflect well on yourself or TAMU, it will not be included in the TAMU GIS Resume Bank. You may or may not be notified if this is the case, depending on the volume of resumes submitted.

Current and former students may resubmit their resume as many times as they would like as new experience, skills, etc. are obtained and their resume gets better and better. Only the latest submission will be shared with potential employers.

Student Resume Submission Guidelines

Current and former students who wish to add their resume to the GIS Resume Bank should:
