When you think about it, everywhere you look there are employment opportunities for land surveyors. Land Surveying is the foundation of all construction projects worldwide!  In fact, many different industries require Professional Land Surveyors including architectural firms, engineering firms, government agencies, real estate sales agencies, mining companies and many more.

There are a vast number of industries that need surveys and the various types of surveys are equally as diverse. As an example, real estate agents will normally require surveys to define the exact details of the land boundaries. An engineer may need topographic information to design storm water structures or an erosion control plan. Therefore, each survey will require different methods and employ acutely more detail or advanced techniques. 

Land Surveying Internships - Getting Prepared

In fact, there are many land surveyors who choose not to specialize, however if you are working toward gaining very specific knowledge you should choose your land surveying internship accordingly. You may find it helpful to join a community such as Land Surveyors United to ask other surveyors about their experiences and advice for finding an internship in surveying.

At times, you may be given a specific amount of responsibility during your land surveying internship, where you will spend a lot of time assisting the professional land surveyor in obtaining data in the field, then compiling that data and creating the final plat or product at the end of the project. 

Land surveying internships

Many land surveying internships are organized through your college as they have lots of contacts with the local professional businesses and many government agencies that offer land surveying.  You can contact local professional businesses independently. Offer them your resume along with a cover letter and send it to companies that interest you.
