Catholicgauze: Now a Professional Geographer

Catholicgauze is beginning a new chapter in his life. I am now a professional geographer. So add this to finishing my thesis and I am one very busy geographer.

Congratulations! Must be exciting -- what will the job entail? I am really curious to know what kinds of positions our government has for geographers? Is there a special department you are in, or are there geographers in numerous departments?

Will you still keep up the blog?

Thanks mom!

Peter - My job is sort of like being Catholicgauze but writing reports on how cultural changes will affect the United States. Geographers are found in numerous departments ranging from Homeland Security, Census, Interior (National Park Services), Defense, and many more.

Anonymous - I plan to keep blogging until I die or burnout due to stress and become a human vegetable.

Congratulations! Out of selfish curiosity, was your blog a consideration in your hiring?

Jon said...

Congrats! If you folks ever need any freelance writers, let me know :-)

Good luck on this next step. I'm sure you're a perfect fit for the job.

Best,
Jon

Adrian,
The blog did help. I knew there was some reason besides avoiding graduate school work to my blogging.

I am glad to see that people hire geographers outside of academia.

Congratulations on this important milestone. D.C. is a wonderful place to be.

By the way, I was listening to a podcast of a Gresham College program on utopias. One of the speakers had Mount Athos as her topic. The geography, as she described, sounded very symbolical.

Belated congratulations Catholicgauze!

I semi-regret leaving D.C. after having a 6-month internship at National Geographic way back in 1994 (lived in Bethesda). I'm envious of your new workplace!

Keep up the great work on the blog!
