A recent blog post from the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists, better known as AEG, gives students and recent grads in geology and geotechnical or geological engineering some great tips. Anyone looking to start a career in the environmental or engineering fields should check them out. I thought their tips for networking and finding a job after college are spot on, and worth the read for any student!
The Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists (AEG) is pleased to announce the Winter, 2011 series of review courses for the ASBOG® geology licensing exam and/or the California Supplemental exam taught by REG REVIEW, Inc. AEG and REG REVIEW, Inc. have partnered to provide these courses since 1992.

A document entitled “Engineering and Geology Practice Guidelines” has been prepared by the JTFAP or Joint Task Force on Areas of Practice. The JFTAP was comprised of representatives from The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) and the Geo-Institute (G-I) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). A draft of the document was published in February of 2009 and members of AEG have already been providing comments to their board through the Section Chairs for possible revisions to the document or for opinions on whether or not AEG should adopt it. A recent email to AEG Members from the President of AEG, Mark Molinari, indicates that the G-I has released the document to their membership for review and comments. Read on for more info.
