GIS Day 2019 is officially one week away and we couldn't be more excited!

In preparation for GIS Day, we are holding a Career Panel tomorrow night with professionals from USGIF, Mapbox, and GMU Career Services. This is an excellent time for you to ask all your burning job seeking questions and getting insight into making that (maybe dreaded?) transition from academia to industry.

And of course...we will have food 😃

RT @rsmahabir: @GGSDepartment its that time again. Calling on @GeoSocialMason @AndyCrooks, @piranha032 and @CabreraAngel to join in the fun. Faculty & Staff are about defending the title and Students apparently are not having this at all.

P.S. If your pets can play, we accept them too :) https://t.co/3TAlRuxAlm
