Why did I choose this course:
I wanted to take architecture but I chose geology because it was the only course available for enrollment when I applied for scholarship in USEP.
About my college education:
The Geology class does not have practical field studies. It was more about reading books, and listening to lectures. The teachers did not explain the hard topics of the subjects or probably because the approach was new to me. I had to do my best to understand the subjects. It was hard studying, not because of the subjects but because it was really uncomfortable. Also the exams were very difficult because teachers wanted us to challenge our minds and think out of the box.
My current job:
I am now working in a small mining company in Compostela Valley. I do the examination and the determination of the types of rocks and if there is gold content in the samples. I work in the mining area.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
A year after graduation, I found work in this present company as one of the researchers.
Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Science in Geology:
This is a good course with much potential for high income. I have already seen people who have become geologists and are doing great in their career whether here or abroad because it is very in demand.
I recommend this course to those who like to be employed in the mining company or or in the environment sector. The income would be good, that’s what my friend in the Department of Environment and Natural Resources told me. And indeed, if you get to the right company, you'll definitely reap the fruits of your labor.
