Career experiences are available for students in fields of study including: meteorology/atmospheric science, climatology, hydrology, natural resources, geographic information systems (GIS), and information technology. A National Weather Service office is an exciting, high energy environment during the summer as Midwest weather can be quite volatile. The student experience includes working on a research and development project with a mentor, day-to-day operations in weather and hydrologic forecast production, and severe weather operations. The National Weather Service is looking for highly motivated self-starters who desire a career experience to enhance their academic course of study.
Students interested in applying for the student volunteer program must provide a college transcript, a letter of recommendation from a professor in their field of study, a resume, and a cover letter describing why they would like to volunteer at the National Weather Service. Applications are due by March 15, 2013.
