Becoming a spatial professional is easy. If you enjoy high school geography, mathematics and even IT then you might just love working as a spatial professional! There are so many options and pathways that you can take.
Students, upon graduating high school, can begin either tertiary study through their university or they can even do vocational education through another tertiary body like TAFE.
Upon completion of these courses, and perhaps beforehand, apply for a job in the area you are studying. This is why networking is so important, and being involved in the Surveying and Spatial Science Institute can introduce you to future employers.

Along with good grades, it is important to be actively involved in a professional Institute like SSSI so you can broaden your professional networks and get some great advice on where you can take your career. Through attending Young Professional events, or sitting on your regional YP Committee, you will meet a wide range of working professionals. These people will form good contacts when job searching, and may even act as referees for you.
