If I saw a land surveyor around and nobody else I would bully them and then shit in my hand and throw it at them.

How's it STEM really? Don't you just need a bachelor's in anything to get started?

Cool job though. Definitely a great option for certain people. Grats to you.

Surveying isn't STEM, its a trade.

Oh, this is actually perfect.

I was just looking at a surveying job ("environmental technician") in my area, but I'm not sure how to apply for it.

I started a geology degree, but I didn't finish it. How much will that hurt me? The job doesn't have any degree requirements listed, but it does list "archeology, anthropology or GIS background" as a plus.

Am I screwed, or do I stand a chance?

I make my money on a farm and am an ecologist by vocation, I'm very skilled at taxonomy, biodiversty science and community and systems ecology, I'm getting good at theory and landscapes.
Needless to say I spend a lot of time outside.
I will make more money this year on ginseng, shiners and watermelons than any land surveyor ever will.

nah sometimes you don't even need a B.S., just your state licenses. It's STEM because it's like Civil Engineering

Nah dude, you should be good just be honest with how much you know about geology and how it can apply to surveying

surveying is 1 degree removed from gis "engineer" which is one degree removed from your average google earth user

Do land surveyors account for the earth's curvature?

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

depends on the size of the project.
for example, if you're just doing someone's backyard or trying to rebuild an avenue, it's still forgivable

but once you're building highways or long bridges, such as the San Francisco bridge, you must take the Earth's curvature into consideration

Have you built a long bridge?

not yet user, the company I work for does smaller projects such as schools, business lots, height certificate surveys, property boundarys, etc.
though theoretically any surveyor can help build a bridge, mostly the state or city surveyors/municipalities take care of that, as they're the ones with that sort of budget
