Question
Hi,

My name is Jon King. I'm an undergraduate geology student. I plan to get a masters degree in whatever aspect of geology I work in. I'm wondering about hydrogeology. What is career satisfaction like in that field?

I know a handful of people who have worked in the environmental consulting industry - most say the industry tends to treat employees poorly and there is little work/life balance often times. I've also heard most hydrogeologists work in consulting firms.

My question for you is where do most hydrogeologists work and how is the job satisfaction? How is work/life balance? How about salary?

Answer
Dear Jack Radar
Hydrogelogists works in groundwater organizations-civil engineering organization and allied institutions
Hydrogeology jo requires more on groundwater assessment-water level recording preparation of hydrogeological maps of the -targeted area
Hydrogeology is field oriented job -requires labo-computational works
Any job requires your feeling love and affection on profession
u can read basic hydrogeology books journals
Wishing all success
