EFG Employment Survey
  • Objective: Analyze the labour market for Geologists in Europe:

    In which industries do professional geologists work? Are their activities related to their training? Do they exploit the job opportunities in other European countries? Which are the prospects for the future?

    The information gathered in this survey is useful for the EFG, for national professional associations, and for individual geologists, our members:

    -              It gives geologists a better overview of their labour opportunities in Europe, helping them to construct their studies and careers

    -              It allows professional associations to offer better services to members, helping them to find jobs and supporting the mentor program for young professionals.

    -              It provides evidence for professional associations to pursue the policy dialogue with universities and education authorities improving the training of geologists.
