Student Resource: Career Pathfinder

Updated May 12, 2020: PCPG developed a spreadsheet for college students who are unsure which college courses are most applicable to various industries or career paths. The Pathfinder spreadsheet is a suggested guide for helpful courses based on PCPG member input and experience. Geologists will often draw on knowledge learned from many different courses depending on the particular site geology.


PCPG active in student outreach this Fall

Posted 14 November 2019: The PCPG Board and members are actively promoting PCPG through student outreach visits at various colleges across the Commonwealth.  Over the past few weeks, PCPG has met with students at West Chester University, Layfayette College, and Kutztown University.

The PCPG outreach presentation contains information on the benefits of PCPG membership, the career outlook and types of employment opportunities for geologists along with the process required to become a Licensed Professional Geologist in Pennsylvania, including the Geologist in Training Certification available for qualified students.
