GIS Job Opportunity in Altoona - Transportation Planner

Tue, 02/10/2015 - 11:49 -- exf107

I was wondering if you would be able to distribute this job opportunity through your Geography Department list-serv.  It will have a fairly strong emphasis on both desktop and online GIS and will primarily support our transportation program.  It is a relatively quick application period, but it may be a great opportunity for someone that wants to remain in central PA.  They would be working with me and performing many of the tasks I’ve been doing for the past 3+ years, so I’m very familiar with the job requirements and can answer any questions you have.

Please let me know if that is something you can do.  Either way, thanks for your time!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
