About this Webinar: The first portion of this webinar will provide an overview of geology licensure qualification requirements in the United States. Having a license to practice geology is a requirement in the majority of US States, Canada and several other countries. Learn about professional licensing requirements and how becoming licensed can influence your career opportunities and career success. Laurie Racca’s presentation will include:

Joe Zilles will describe his journey as a geologist beginning as an exploration field geologist in the oil and gas industry. For the past 22 years, Joe’s work has focused on engineering geology, contaminant hydrogeology and water supply projects. He also volunteered with Engineers Without Borders to design water supply projects in Kenya. This work included teaching local residents how to build and maintain spring boxes. Joe’s presentation will include a discussion of what qualifications and skills are important for early career geologists looking for work in the fields of environmental and engineering geology.
