Jobs & Careers

The AAG offers a variety of resources to answer questions, guide your career planning, and help you find a job. AAG members can access job announcements through the Jobs in Geography Center. Members and non-members alike are invited to explore our profiles of individual geographers; information about specific occupations, skills, and salary trends; and an assortment of other career advice and information. Use the links in the left-hand navigation to get started!

We continually add new information, insights, and advice about professional development and career planning from ongoing research and education projects, such as the EDGE project and enhancing diversity initiatives. Check back frequently for the latest updates.
