GIS Analyst in Training



I am 23 years-old and I have just received a Bachelors degree in Geography with a concentration in Geographic Information Systems & Technology (GIS). I love everything that has to do with map design & development, analyzing data or patterns, implementing GIS software to solve problems, and I feel a true devotion for geography. I have worked summers in the Forest Service for the past 3 years and have gained knowledge in fire suppression as well as forestry. I do have unrelated certifications from the U.S Forest Service as an A grade sawyer in falling trees as well as an operator of fire engines and other government vehicles. But now I look forward to turning my experience and education into a career. I love working with people, especially if they have the same passion I have for what they do. MY SPECIALITIES

As forestry technician/wild land firefighter you

carry out a variety of fire suppression measures

such as tree falling, backfire, and burnout

operations; utilize a variety of specialized tools, equipment and techniques while actively managing

wildfires. As well as operate light vehicles and 4X4s. Firefighters are exposed to hiking, weather

extremes and wildlife, and working extended hours

or shifts, evening work and/or spending some

nights at remote locations. It is common to travel to out of state districts and aid crews in fire

prevention in their forests. Due to often working in new forests, it is essentially to know how to read a map, critically analyze geography & weather, as

well as work a map & compass. Assignments can

last weeks so utilizing teamwork, positive attitudes, hard work, leadership, and communication, as all

of these skills necessary.

As a delivery driver for Papa Johns, you take on

the main role of delivering goods from the

restaurant to the consumers within a 20 mile

radius. This tasks requires using small-scale GIS

applications such as Google Maps for navigation.

Spatial-analytical skills are also required when

planning to deliver multiple orders on a single

run. It is necessary to perform duties that may

not be implied in the job title. This includes many responsibilities when relieved from driving

duties, such as helping the team on the prep-line, cleaning, and packaging. To accomplish these

tasks it takes discipline, teamwork, initiative, and integrity.
