When: October 30 - November 1, 2013
Where: Annapolis, MD
The AAG's Enhancing Departments and Graduate Education (EDGE) in Geography project will sponsor two sessions on careers and professional development at the 2013 joint meeting of the Applied Geography Conference and the Middle Atlantic Division of the AAG.
A panel discussion featuring geographers working in the business, government, nonprofit, and academic sectors will continue our successful "Beyond the Ivory Tower" series of sessions about career opportunities. The panel has been scheduled for Friday, November 1, from 2:30-3:40 pm. It will be immediately followed by a free workshop, "Preparing Students for the 21st-Century Workforce," from 3:50-5:00 pm. The workshop will introduce instructors, advisers, and students to a series of activities designed to raise students' awareness of employment prospects and to help them articulate the value of their geography training to potential employers.
The complete conference program is available online at: http://applied.geog.kent.edu/. On-site registration at a reduced rate will be available for participants who will only attend the Middle Atlantic Division's mini-conference on the afternoon of Friday, Nov. 1 (including the EDGE panel and workshop). Registrants for the Applied Geography Conference may attend Friday afternoon's sessions at no additional charge.
