The AGI Workforce Program tracks the supply and demand of geoscientists by collecting original data and analyzing existing data from Federal and industry sources, in order to inform the geoscience community of workforce trends and issues through regular reports.  The Workforce Program also engages the next generation of geoscientists by supporting student recruitment at the college level and by communicating with students, faculty, and non-academic professionals about making the transition into the geoscience workforce after graduation.
