Earth Sciences

The employment outlook for those in earth science positions is generally expected to be good through 2022. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts faster than average job growth for several earth science occupations during this period, due to a large number of expected retirements and the relatively low number of qualified earth science graduates entering the field. The American Geosciences Institute's (AGI) report titled Status of the Workforce 2011 reported the same information. According to the report, U.S. colleges and universities are not graduating enough students in the geosciences to fill the rapidly growing vacancies.
