Cinde Morris will be presenting “Don’t Divorce Your Career – Tips for Rekindling a Passion for GIS” on Thursday, October 8, Session 20 3:30-5:00 PM, Split Rock Room 2.
We’ve all been there – one day we’re happily working on a cool map and the next were stuck in a month long funk where the idea of fixing all those parcel errors or facing an uphill battle of entering a vast amount of data manually makes us want to cry – or relive that printer scene from Office Space. Those of us in technology driven jobs often face the struggle of finding passion in what we do, especially where mundane daily tasks reign supreme. In many places of employment, Geospatial departments are a one-person show. How do we motivate ourselves when no one speaks our spatial language? To be successful in your job, and in GIS, finding your passion and developing the ability to self-motivate is critical to your success and overall happiness. I will talk about rekindling that passion and finding a purpose in GIS so you can love what you do, no matter what you are doing.
