The Graduate Cadetship at Spatial Vision has been the perfect launching pad for a career in GIS or software development. It has allowed me to work on a multitude of dynamic and interesting projects varying from the infamous Spatial Vision VicMap Books to the creation of datasets for the National Data Grid. An important benefit of the position is the ability to research, develop and implement a project that appeals to me, by which Spatial Vision gave access to resources to follow my passion. The skills further developed from the Cadetship have included project management, data modification, data presentation, client interaction and team building.”
Mina Jahanshahi, SV Cadet for 2009

The 2007 Spatial Vision Cadetship has been a rewarding opportunity to apply the academic and GIS skills gained throughout my university degree with an innovative and well established company. 'Hands on' is the best way to cement these skills and from day one there is a chance to do just that! By working on a diverse range of projects with experienced and enthusiastic team members, I have an invaluable opportunity to gain a wide range of experience as a GIS analyst. Undertaking the cadet project (part of the SV graduate cadetship program) also gave me chance to focus these skills in an area of my interest.”
