I exchanged information with him and then bumped into him again at the third meeting I went to. He had announced that they were looking to fill a position. I sent him my resume and he said I'd be contacted if they liked me. During all of this, another contact I made, Hugh had called me to say a friend of his owned an environmental consulting company an was looking to hire somebody. I was waiting on him to see what would happen, but I got a call from Alex's contact. I was chosen, it's a six month contract with definite possibility for an extension. I'm hoping it will become a permanent position eventually. I'm super happy and looking forward to learning everything I can while I'm there.
I am being contracted out to TxDOT, Texas Department of Transportation in their Environmental Affairs Division as a GIS technician. I am in charge of map production for the science divisions, supporting the Biologists, Archaeologists and Historians and creating maps for them. I also have to manage the Storm water database that we collect data for.
