Survey: Decision Points in the Geoscience Career Pathway

Decision Points in the Geoscience Career Pathway

This project aims to determine the key inflection and decision points in the career pathways for early-career geoscientists, from university through to 10 years post-graduation. This study will not only identify the factors contributing to individual decisions, but also will monitor career choices over a ten year period. The results will provide direct insight into the causal factors for decisions pertaining to enrollment and retention in geoscience university programs, as well as decisions about career pathway choices.
