GITA partners with US Department of Labor
GITA has agreed to work with O*NET (Occupational Information Network), a research partner with the U.S. Department of Labor in an effort to extend efforts first expended through our GIWIS partnership. O*NET is interested in capturing information about the geospatial industry for use by the Department of Labor in classifying and describing our workforce. They have particular interest in answering the question "What constitutes a GIS Expert?"
To help with their efforts, we will share our membership e-mail list with them such that they may contact select individuals and invite them to participate in a survey. Compensation ($40) will be paid to those who participate, and all information will be kept in strict confidence. GITA will share the results with our members upon conclusion of the study.
If you would like to opt-out, please contact Drew Fioranelli at
, and we will be sure not to share your e-mail address. Additional information about this effort may be found at
