Eric Amundson, AScT
Started out my career as a Geographer and Geomatics Technician at Simon Fraser University, by becoming a marine life research assistantthat assisted with the classification and mapping of different types of sea vegetation around Tofino. I currently work as a HR Coordinator at BC Partners in Workforce Innovation, which supplies workers with disabilities to fill career positions for major companies such as Seaspan and London Drugs.
Why I Became A Technology Professional
- I decided to become a GIS or Geomatics Technician after beginning my degree in Geography and attending the Neil Squire Employ-Ability program. I thought it would be an interesting career because there are so many things one can display and research through the use of spatial and satellite data.
Professional & Community Activities
- Currently, I volunteer as a Nature Guide for the City of Surrey, informing locals of the important urban wildlife in Surrey Parks. Have also helped plan geography student events and opportunities through SFU's Geography Student Union. Lastly, I have assisted people in the Neil Squire program through public speaking, representation and computer program teaching.
