Spread the word; lets get the kids involved in the Geospatial Industry
In 2015 RICS reported over 85% of UK Surveyors said that they experienced recruiting problems due to lack of qualified applicants. POB Magazine in America reported a shortage of surveyors full stop! The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) and The National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) both launched ‘Young Surveyors Networks’, supporting surveyors aged 35 years and under, however there is a much more basic challenge to be had: starting with the kids (aged 13 and under).
I’ve made it my mission to help RAISE the standards in the Geospatial Industry Globally. Part of my mission is attract young blood, over the course of the next 6+months, we will be helping to build awareness of the survey industry globally by delivering fun interactive educational content for the young generation (Generation Z (1996 – 2010) and Gen Alpha (2011-2025).
