Most employers prefer a four-year degree in surveying or a related field.
Employers look for surveyors who have the ability to visualize distances, sizes, and abstract forms. They must be able to work accurately because mistakes are costly. Surveyors need good eyesight, coordination, and hearing. This is because they communicate with other team members verbally and with hand signals. Good people skills and the ability to work as part of a team are also important. For survey party chiefs and other supervisory jobs, leadership skills are necessary.
Survey technicians can advance to senior survey technician and then survey party chief. However, they need experience and formal training in order to advance. Some become licensed surveyors. Some surveyors become supervisors for large projects. Others start their own businesses.
