For the last two years I have worked as a field assistant for Building & Land Surveyors, where I have helped with small and large-scale surveying projects. I am looking to further enhance my skills and experience as a surveyor and I have had broad experience in sales and customer service, which have honed my communications skills. I have recently graduated from an Associate Degree in Geographic Information Systems course with honours.
