A common platform for employers
and Geoscience graduates during the AEG International Seminar on
Geophysics, 5- 7 Nov’06 at Hyderabad, India.
The Association of Exploration Geophysicists (AEG) was
established in the year 1974 to promote the cause of all disciplines
related to exploration geophysics. During the last 30 years the AEG
has grown from strength to strength as reflected by its current
membership of nearly 1400. During this three decade period, the AEG
together with National and State organizations and R&D organizations
engaged in Hydrocarbons, Mineral, Groundwater, Geotechnical, R&D and
academic activities in geosciences, organized several seminars on
exploration geophysics in different parts of India. Through these
seminars, the AEG was able to provide a common platform to different
practitioners of geosciences year after year for exchange of ideas
and interaction and in the process it became possible to focus and
bring to light, the strengths of various geoscientific institutions
of India. Today AEG seminar has come to be viewed as a rallying
point not only for discussing specific scientific problems but also
for promotion of Geosciences itself in the country. Some of the
important aspects related to the above programs are included as a
power point presentation in the CD enclosed.
We are happy to record that presently we are witnessing
an unusually active phase in the field of Exploration activity. The
unprecedented levels of crude oil prices all over the world, has
provided such an impetus for accelerated exploration programs for
energy needs all over the world. In India, during the last three
years national, public sector and private organizations engaged in
geophysical exploration have conducted campus interviews in all the
10-12 universities teaching geophysics. It gives me immense
satisfaction to see these young and bright geophysicists bubbling
with happiness and expectations to take careers in the subjects in
which they are trained during their student life.
AEG wishes to further strengthen the prevalent
opportunities and optimism among the geophysics graduates in
particular and geoscience graduates in general in India. Towards
this end a JOB MELA is proposed to be held on 5th,
6th and 7th Nov’06 on the eve of the
International seminar being organized by AEG at Hyderabad. The
JOB MELA is conceived to provide a common platform to all the
prospective employers in geosciences anywhere in the world. The
Indian geoscience graduates who are known for their hard work,
intelligence and well-formulated academic training will be invited
to the JOB MELA to be interviewed by the prospective
Towards this end, the Biodata of all the Geophysics graduates and
those who graduated with honors in Geology from over 140
universities in India will be made available to the employers who
are participating in these programs at “FREE OF COST” on 5th,
6th and 7th Nov’06. The employers can choose
the candidates they wish to interview and select them on the spot.
AEG will provide the necessary facilities for conducting the
interviews. During this period the captains of the Indian industry
and R&D organizations in Hydrocarbons, Mineral, Groundwater,
Geotechnical will interact and extend any support that is needed.
We extend a cordial invitation to your esteemed organization to
participate in this exercise which is aimed at not only providing
employment to the graduates of geosciences but also, more
importantly, pave the way for attracting better talent into the
field of Geosciences in the coming years.
We will be thankful if you confirm your participation or
otherwise at any early date. Please feel free to write to us for any
further clarification and additional information you wish to seek.
Looking forward to meeting you during the AEG
International seminar on Geophysics during 6th - 12th
Nov’06 at Hyderabad, India.
