Getting a Job—Resumes, Networking, and Interviews
In the Jan/Feb TPG 2013, there is a great article on getting a job and how to prepare yourself in writing a resume, networking to get a job, proper way to interview, and questions you should be ready for. We have put this together as a separate document for your use. You can also use this to recruit students that are not AIPG members and to remind them that they can join for free.

AIPG Young Professional Member Documents - AIPG has published over 230 articles and other documents specifically addressing student and young professionals in The Professional Geologist and as independent documents over the years. These articles have been collected along with a topical index of the articles that will assist in locating specific articles and documents addressing a specific topic. Included in this collection are all of the Student’s Voice columns, the articles for students published in the January issue of the TPG over the past several years, other student-authored articles, etc. Over the years, a wealth of useful information and advice is included in this collection, which will be updated as each issue of the TPG is published.
