I would like to apologize in advance for asking yet another "what should I do with my life" type of question.
I am currently a senior who is very close to finishing up my B.S. in Information Systems. Over the past 5 months I have become very much interested in GIS, after taking courses in both Geology and Oceanography. I have been spending some time independently studying/learning application systems such as ArcGIS and Google Earth. I have noticed that most GIS related jobs are reserved for Geography, Architecture, and Environmental Sciences grads, which is obviously understandable being that the underlying principles of GIS are rooted in those disciplines.
My question is as follows: Do you feel that I would be considered for a position working in this field with an Information Systems degree, or should I move on to other aspirations?
I am considering completing a 9 course GIS certificate program offered at one of the local universities upon completion of my degree, though a GIS related internship would be great right now. Thank you for reading, and any bit of advice would be greatly appreciated.
