    • Dare shared some job postings which led to discussion of the market, hiring, and all the folks looking to enter into geospatial work. Decided to hold a panel for next month.
      • Dare, Tanya, Stefan, and Kemi will speak to:
        • The Market - what geospatial jobs are out there, who's hiring, what is the competition?
        • Finding Opportunities - building your network, building a portfolio of work/skills, socializing, social media
        • Getting the Job - Resume / Interview
        • What Have You Gotten Yourself Into? - what the work will really be like each day
