I am a graduate student inquiring about an entry-level position that will utilize and continue to develop my geological deductive reasoning skill set. My knowledge and experience stem from exploring if it is possible that the chemical make-up of minerals are feasible “fingerprints” for the source of the rock sample along with being a TA since high school. I am on Skillpage because I have yet to attain employment since I graduated with my master's in May 2013. I am a hard worker always willing to go the extra mile and hours to get the job done. I enjoy making others laugh wherever I go, of course during the appropriate time during work. I am just looking for a chance to prove myself and get a foothold into the geological world.
My experiences are only through what I have gained in school, not as of yet been employed in the field of geology hence "improving"
