Surveying and Mapping Technicians

Exploring This Job

One of the best opportunities for experience is to work part time or during summer break for a construction firm or a company involved in survey work. Even if the job does not involve direct contact with survey crews, there is opportunity to observe their work and converse with them to discover more about their daily activities. Another possibility is to work for a government agency overseeing land use. The Bureau of Land Management, for example, has employment opportunities for students who qualify, as well as many volunteer positions. The Forest Service also offers temporary positions for students.
