Job Opportunities for Recent Geology Graduates

The California Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources currently has two classifications of jobs posted for numerous vacancies – they are looking to recruit through universities for both recent graduates as well as ones who have years of experience in the petroleum industry for a senior classification. Geology or petroleum engineering and related fields are where they are looking to recruit from.

Here is a link to their web page, under the first header “News” they’ve placed the announcements for these two separate job announcements. Today or tomorrow they will be extending the August 31st final filing date to September 30th for the Senior Oil & Gas Engineer position.

Fall Meeting of the Far West Section of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers: Sierra Nevada to the Coast Ranges - Oct. 8-10

The Far Western Section of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers would like to extend an invitation to all geologists, teachers, and students who are interested in the geology of California. We are having our Fall Conference at CSU Fresno on October 8-10, and will be offering a wide ranging roster of field trips to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, the Sierra Nevada foothills, Carrizo Plains National Monument, the Diablo Range of the Coast Ranges, and a look at the brand new Madera Fossil Discovery Center and the excavations of Ice Age faunas at the Fairmead Landfill. We will also have a vast array of California and Nevada geology field guides and other resources available for sale. You do not need to be a member of the NAGT to participate.

Special discounts are offered to students, and costs are low for this kind of opportunity. Information and registration forms can be accessed on the Far Western Section website. For questions and more information, please contact conference coordinator Paul Troop.
