Geologists are people who study the Earth. On a daily basis, you and the rest of human society interact with the Earth in obvious and not so obvious ways. These interactions range from the materials that make up your car or home, the food that you eat, the water you drink, and even the air you breathe. Geologists are employed in each one of these interactions.
As a result, the employment outlook is good for the foreseeable future, and a career in geology can be personally rewarding and a benefit to society.
