    Re: What are the government job opportunities after B.Sc Geology?


    After successful completion of in geology there are numerous avenues in both in the public and private sectors.
    The Union Public Service Commission conducts Geologists Examination every year for placements in Central Government Agencies like GSI(Geological Survey of India) and the Central Ground water Board. Geology is a popular choice in Civil Services and Forest Service Examinations conducted by the UPSC.

    Similarly, Coal India, Mineral Exploration Authority, Oil & Natural Gas Corporation, Hindustan Zinc and several other organisations engaged in mineral explorations utilize the services of Geologists.
    The Defence and Para-military forces utilize the services of Geologists. One can also join academics by pursuing a PhD or M.Phil in Geology and passing the National Education Test (NET) Conducted by University Grants Commission.
    Experienced Geologists, especially those with an advanced degree in geology or business administration, can advance to top positions in industry, government, and education sector. These positions may be in research or administration.
    I hope the above information will help you a lot.
