Jon’s geospatial-specific insight, background, and suggestions were thoroughly appreciated; questions were thoughtfully answered. Many students implemented ideas and suggestions from this job-hunt seminar into their resumes and/or LinkedIn pages. This is definitely a worthwhile session; I highly recommend it."
