Career Pathways Competition

The South East Asia Surveying Congress SEASC2019 Darwin Organising Committee are pleased to announce that entries for the Career Pathways Competition are now open!

Clarity on career pathways in our industry can be “clear as mud” at the best of times, and for many young people thinking about their future, as well as many of us who are working in the industry, it’s not always apparent what options are available to us. To muddy the waters further, it is difficult to see beyond our own limited experiences to the diverse array of those lived by others. This competition offers a chance to tell your story, to share your experiences and tell how you came to be where you are now, in the context of your career pathway. We strongly encourage you to apply, especially if you are a young-at-heart professional who would like to inspire students and young professionals to enter, stay in and improve our industry.

The Career Pathways Competition is open to people of all ages and in all countries. No matter if you are a primary school student or high school student inspired by a parent in the industry, an undergraduate or postgraduate student, someone who has entered the industry after working in another industry, someone who has been working in the industry for a short or a long time, or someone who is retired after a lifetime in the industry – we want to hear from you!

Theme“My Story: How I came to be here”

How did you end up in the spatial/surveying industry? To highlight the depth and breadth of people in our industry, we would love to hear about your personal journey to where you are right now. What steps have you taken to get here? What have been your biggest inspirations and motivators? What do you love about your job? From timelines of your studies and career to photos of your childhood and family, maps of your travels, and experiences in the context of entering the spatial profession, we’re interested in hearing what your journey is, no matter where you are. 

Entries will be on display at the South East Asian Survey Congress 2019, with voting by congress delegates from around the world.
