Abstract: Poster presented in February 2019 at NCGIS. The goal of UNC Greensboro’s (UNCG) Graduate Student Professional Development team is to support graduate students and prepare them for entry into the workforce by providing opportunities for training, networking, and scholarship. Current trends in the job market point to a growing demand for digital skills, especially in GIS-related fields. However, many graduate students, especially those in social sciences or humanities, have little to no experience with GIS and other digital skills. To address a growing demand for digital skills in the job market, UNC Greensboro’s Graduate Student Professional Development Team is developing a series of bootcamp-style workshops. The objectives of these events are to train students in digital methodologies, and give them opportunities to show their research and network with peers and professionals in their fields.
