    I should have added (and this may be obvious), but you may find work in your new field way before you finish the program. I’ve had a lot of luck selling my cartographic experience and general geography background while making sure to highlight my current GIS training in progress.

    Actual cartographers in the GIS field are few and far between and your map design experience will give you a leg up.
