Surveyors Wanted!

Hello, my name is Rhys Johnson and I am recruiting people that are interested in being surveyors. Surveying is an interesting job and requires specific skills to be able to do it. If you are interested in pursuing a career in surveying, you made a good call. Let me tell you about the basics.

Surveyors must possess the following characteristics: problem sensitivity, written comprehension, information ordering, oral comprehension, good vision for both near and far distances, and a knack for oral expression. Skills necessary for surveying include being good at math, being able to write and speak well, active listening, critical thinking, and reading comprehension. Surveyors are working outside most of the time, so they must be properly suited to the conditions they are working in. This job also requires the ability to work well with others and attention to detail.

Most surveying jobs require at least a Bachelor's degree, so obtain one from a college or university of you are considering this job. Surveyors can expect to make between $30,000 and $60,000 a year. Surveyors may be surveying for a variety of reasons, but most are construction-related (building houses, constructing roads, shipbuilding, etc.). Major employers of surveyors in Hampton Roads include AMSEC LLC and BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair. In Virginia, the area with the highest demand for surveyors is the Tidewater region. Sign up today! It's a choice you won't regret!
