Issued March 28th 2013 1 pm CDT
We are currently announcing two opportunities for either Student Volunteers or Student for credit internships at the National Weather Service at Milwaukee/Sullivan WI in the Summer/Fall 2013 (roughly June 2013 thru December 2013). This is ideal for students in their first 1-3 years of college in fields like Meteorology, Atmospheric Sciences, Hydrology, Computer Science, or Information Technology.
If you are attending UW Milwaukee or UW Madison, you can sign up for college credit rather than volunteering. Or you may choose to volunteer. Regardless, the experience will be roughly the same for you.
All volunteer/internship positions will feature roughly 4-8 hours one day per week. 50% of the time you'll be job shadowing at our Meteorologist Intern desk. The other 50% of the time you'll be working on meteorology, hydrology, or computer related projects assigned by our staff.
Summer 2013: If you are interested, by Monday April 15th 2013, please send me a one page resume to the e-mail address at the bottom of this page. You may include a cover letter and references if you wish. In the subject line of the e-mail, please reference Summer 2013 Student Volunteer. We will be selecting 2 positions for the June-December 2013 period. If selected, this involves a full security clearance plus fingerprinting (at a cost of about $10 to the student).
