The latest instalment in the Australian Geoscientist Employment Survey series is open for contributions until this Saturday 21st July.
The latest instalment in this survey series is designed to provide data on trends in geoscientist employment in Australia during the second quarter (April to June) of 2018.
Please contribute to the survey personally, encourage your peers and colleagues to participate and share news of the survey via social media. We need as many contributions as possible from Australian geoscientists working or seeking work in any sector of our profession. You do not need to be an AIG member to contribute – we would like to hear from as many geoscientists working or seeking work in Australia as possible.
The data collected by this series of surveys helps AIG to develop a consistently based, robust and reliable view of employment trends affecting our profession.
The first quarter 2018 survey showed the recovery in geoscientist employment evident in the latter half of 2017 had stalled.
The general feeling, however, is that prospects for geoscience employment in Australia, particularly in exploration and mining, should be improving as a result of increased investment across Australia. How this is translating into jobs will be demonstrated by the survey results.
No data that could personally identify respondents is collected. Contributions to the survey are required from both employed and unemployed geoscientists to ensure the relevance of results.
Your completing the survey really helps to make a difference to the standing and knowledge of our profession.
