Below is the list of the personal and professional skills that are required in order to become a Geographer:


1. As a geographer, you need to be research oriented. There is tremendous need of conducting the research and therefore you will have to conduct on your own. You need to be able to dig in to the details and interpret the data correctly.

2. You need to be good at mathematics. A number of times you will have to do mathematical calculations in order to derive the results. Though most of the calculations are done on the computers yet it is really very important that you understand the maths behind it only then you will be able to interpret the information correctly.

3. You need to be a good traveler. As a geographer you don't have to sit in your cabin all the time. So many times you will be required to go outside to collect the samples and conduct your research. Therefore you need to fulfill that requirement and enjoy your outdoor works.

4. You should be very good with your computer skills. The need of using the technology and specially computers is increasing day by day. Specially the use of tools and computer software is really important if you want to provide the complete results without causing any delay.

5. As a geographer you need to be really good at your communication skills. You need to meet a number of people during your work whether its surveying or data collection or the conferences that one attends as a geographer or the media communication that you will e required to make. You need to be really good at both written and oral communication skills.

6. You need to be a really good team player and know how to contribute in team settings. Also you should be a good leader so that you can lead your fellow persons and guide them in the right direction.

Thus these skills are extremely important for the geographers and should be learnt early in their careers.
