Geography's Career Pathway
The skills you use in your geographical studies make you of potential interest to a wide range of employers. The close link between the subject and the world around us makes for a long and varied list of related careers for example working with development or aid agencies, environmental work, using Geographical Information Systems, working for the census office and in tourism and recreation. However most of these areas involve only one part of the broad subject of Geography.

Statistics show that compared with other subjects, Geographers are among the most employable. Many of those leaving university with a Geography degree enter three fields of employment: administration and management; marketing or finance. Other areas looking for students will a global lens are various Non-Governmental Agencies and Aid Agencies, local, provincial and federal governments, CSIS, the United Nations and the military (logistics). This is presumably because Geographers possess the abilities and skills that employers look for.
