Geographers enter a very wide range of career areas and put simply there is no such thing as a geography job; there are jobs that geographers do. Studying geography provides you with valuable skills and a firm base for life-long learning.
Geography is an entry point to many careers, for example: town and transport planning, chartered surveying, land and water management, sustainability, environmental consultancy, development, tourism, conservation, demography, housing and social welfare.
Employers seek a mixture of skills, qualifications and experience when they recruit for a job. As a geographer you will be in demand as you will be a good communicator, have competent I.T. skills, be an independent researcher, able to work effectively in a team and be able to combine information from a variety of sources.
