Like any area in school that teaches you to think critically and analyze, there are a lot of employers that will be looking for those skills, specifically. However, there are also a lot of jobs that would suit someone who has studied geography in school that would utilize both their skills to analyze and the knowledge they learned from studying the earth.

Some of these include jobs like a town planner, a teacher, a lecturer, an environmental consultant, a recycling officer, and so many more. These jobs, and others like them, would use the knowledge that a geography major has learned and put them to the test.

To find the specific job that is best for one geography major is to read the job descriptions, find out what interests them most, and go from there.

The analytical skills derived from a Geography degree will be useful to many prospective employers, but those jobs that most naturally fall within the geographer's compass are as follows: Cartographer, Commercial/residential surveyor, Environmental consultant, Geographical information systems officer, Planning and development surveyor, high school teacher, town planner.

You need to consider which aspect of Geography has fascinated you the most. Look carefully at job descriptions. Make sure the work is what will suit you before you apply.
