Christopher M. Keane, director of technology and communications at the American Geosciences Institute (AGI), hosted a workshop titled “Jumping on the Employment Express – How to be Part of the Geosciences Employment Boom” on Tuesday, 31 March 2015, in the Abelson Collaboration Center as part of DTM's Postdoctoral Development Workshop series.

The workshop covered the obstacles geoscience graduates face when entering the workforce today. Keane gave important advice and provided thoughtful insights on the geoscience employment boom happening right now and how to take better advantage of it when looking for a job. Notes from the workshop and a copy of his powerpoint presentation are available. 

Keane received his Ph.D. in marine, estuarine, and environmental science from the University of Maryland in 1997. He began work at AGI as a research associate in 1997, and advanced to his current position in 2000. In 2004, he became the editor for Geotimes, AGI's monthly geo-news magazine, as well as editor for AGI's annual Directory of Geoscience Departments. He also serves as co-author of EarthInquiry, an expanding series of geoscience exercise modules published through W.H. Freeman and Company.
