    Workshop by Voort: “Dive and Thrive in the GIS World”

    Are you a GIMA student unsure about which role or company best suits you? Explore the geospatial working field at our workshop, “Dive and Thrive,” where a GIS consultant will share his careersteps. If you are currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree but are contemplating the GIMA master’s program, don’t hesitate to join us. You are more than welcome to discover your (possible) future work field!

    Make a well-considered decision by gaining an overview of company cultures and tasks associated with GIS roles. This workshop will provide you with a good idea of whether a GIS career or the GIMA master’s program is the right path for you.

    At the end of the workshop there is some time for personal coaching based on your personality analysis, which you completed before entering the presentation/workshop. We compare your analysis with the positions of company cultures, roles, and responsibilities, providing insight into your potential best match based on your personality.
