Dear friend, thank you for your question, and I am happy to answer it through CareerGuide. com. Here you have not mentioned your academic qualifications and what you are doing at present. In fact this is a very practical question.
The geographer job opportunity depends upon the academic qualifications, number of years of experience, the specialization in the subject and the place of work. Let me explain things in detail and one by one. The academic qualification is very important, a person having a degree of masters in geography is also known as geographer. But the scope of a person holding only masters degree will have limited scope. A person holding a doctoral degree have more chances of job. The reason being is that now a days there is severe competition. At the time of interview, the maximum candidates are holding doctoral degree. The experience of a geographer in relevant field is also very important. If a geographer is in teaching profession after master degree or a doctoral degree. Then the geographer will have bright chances of getting selection in academic jobs. If a person has experience in field studies, then the geographer will have more job opportunities in research areas. The research areas will be construction of maps both digital and on papers. The specialization in the geography is also very important, for example physical geography, social geography or environmental geography. The relevant specialization experience will be decisive factor at the time of applying for a job. Finally the place of work, whether you wish to work in government sector (colleges, universities or institutes) also matters. To find a job of geographer in government sector, you have to look for advertisement in print media. Most of the jobs are advertisements are advertised in national news papers such as The Times of India, The Hindustan Times, Indian Express, Deccan Herald. You have regularly read the news papers to find out job for you.On the other hand, you may directly search the websites of the organization to find the job. The best way also is that you may search using Google. Here you should write the key words and the relevant jobs will come, then you can look for relevant job.Please also be in contact with your friends and seniors, they will definitely help you. In my friend circle any job advertised related to our subjects, we post on facebook.Therefore, you should also use social media for job opportunities. You may also post your CV on monster.com, ac.uk.com or naukri.com websites.With all my best wishes.
