Probably something many of us in geomatics often come across in our careers is whether or not we should be highly specialized on a specific geomatics aspect or should we diversify and become competent in a multitude of geomatics related disciplines.
Now, one particular problem with being really specialized in something is that although you become an expert in something you can often be too focused, and potentially closing other doors or limiting possible career paths. When you diversify you can still become specialized in things but at a lesser extent yet work with more components of the industry.
The job market has been slowly recovering but layoffs and high unemployment rates are still causing many people to change their career to an area outside of their college major.

It’s important to always be learning and growing. With each new job change, you will grow and develop as a person. Remember, your past has made you who you are. Embrace it and you are sure to be successful. Geomatics jobs are out there but they are becoming more specialized with the need to have a diverse background, so don’t be afraid to switch your career and join the growing Canadian geomatics industry.
