Geodetic Surveyors

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Most employers prefer to hire geodetic surveyors who are licensed, have three to four years of experience in the field, and hold a bachelor’s degree. Surveyors must have strong mathematical skills and be detail oriented. The job requires the ability to work with numbers and perform mathematical computations accurately and quickly. Geodetic surveyors must also be able to visualize and understand two- and three-dimensional objects, including spatial relationships, and form perceptions by comparing shapes, sizes, lines, shadings, and other forms. Physical fitness is also helpful in this line of work, because geodetic surveyors spend a great deal of time walking on various types of terrain, in varying conditions, and carrying different types of equipment. The ability to work independently as well as with others is also important.
