People interested in a career in geographic information systems (GIS) can hear from a panel of professionals and talk with representatives from GIS companies and government agencies at a GIS Career Night April 12 at Front Range Community College.

The event is from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Community Room of the Classroom Building at the Boulder County Campus, 2121 Miller Drive, Longmont.

Attendees also can receive a 5-minute review of their resumes and have a photo taken that would be suitable for LinkedIn and other job-search uses. Bring a sufficient number of resumes to distribute as well as to have the review.

FRCC has a new Associate of Applied Science degree in Geospatial Science and certificates in geographic information systems. State and federal employment agencies place GIS technicians in the “Cartographers and Photogrammetrists” category, where the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment reports an entry-level salary of $49,000 in 2016.
