Geologist Resume

A geologist is the person, who studies the rocks, the minerals and the strata of the planet in order to discover how Earth was formed. A geologist can also take note of soil types from the forest, can walk through the caldera of a volcano, can prepare geologic reports and maps, can analyze rocks from various planets, or can study relics of the ships in the ocean. Office duties: the geologist prepares reports and synopsis of the work of other scientists. But, mostly a geologist is a field worker: he takes samples and then analyzes them. A geologist can take soil samples, sample cores taken from a tropical ocean or sample cores from beneath the polar ice caps.
