The objective of the article is to analyse the changes in labour market destinations of geography graduatesin selected countries over the last 30 years. Moreover, the paper discusses the results of a Polish study on professionalcareer plans of recent geography graduates and the fulfilment of these plans in 2012.
It has beenestablished that key professions in which a geography degree proves useful include: teachers, GIS specialists,and land use/environmental planners. Currently, Polish students would like to work mainly as specialists dealingwith analysing and monitoring environmental changes, urban planners, spatial designers and teachers.Sadly, their expectations are hardly ever met and only students looking for teaching positions were most likelyto succeed in their job seeking efforts.
