Professional Development and Growth
As a new employee, every day, every task, every project, will present the opportunity for growth. In the beginning, this may feel a bit overwhelming, but as you settle in, you will find that you have come to embrace the challenges that each new opportunity brings. To help you find your way, we offer a variety of mechanisms to expand your personal and professional horizons.
We encourage each employee to find a mentor, an individual in the firm with whom he or she connects on a personal level. A mentor can be someone to talk to about technical questions, provide insight into the firm’s culture and values, explain the business side of our operations, or discuss career development and planning. Each mentor is different and one’s mentoring needs may change over time.
Participation in Our Company-Sponsored Internal Practice Area Groups
Each Practice Area maintains its own internal email list and web portal, creating a community within a community. These forums provide access to our senior-most professionals, allowing us to leverage our technical excellence and leadership in our core practice areas. Each Practice Area routinely presents “brown-bag” webinars to help further our capabilities and foster teamwork. Additionally, each Practice Area typically holds an annual meeting, to which key staff are invited to participate. These meetings often include technical presentations, poster sessions, and strategic planning functions, all designed to help you further your professional growth and relationships with peers and experts from all over the company.
Geosyntec benefits include a tuition reimbursement program for pre-approved job-related coursework at accredited institutions, up to two paid professional organization memberships, and the opportunity to attend short courses, conferences, and workshops.
Geosyntec strongly encourages the firm’s engineers and scientists to obtain professional registrations and certifications in their respective disciplines. As an entry-level staff professional, you should expect to work under the direct supervision of a Geosyntec employee who will help guide your development towards professional registration or certification in your chosen discipline.
