How to Find Weather Related Jobs and Careers
Are you looking for a career in meteorology or another weather related field? If you are, you may be wondering how you can go about searching for and examining open job listings. The good news it that you have a number of different options, when looking to do so.
When it comes to finding open meteorology jobs, as well as other weather related careers, you will want to pay attention to your local newspaper classified ads. This is particularly important if you live in or around a large city. Larger cities often have many nearby news stations, for both television and radio, that hire meteorologists or those with meteorology degrees. Although many newspaper job listings are short and to the point, you should be provided with a means of communication, which you can use to learn more about the job in question, such as required training and experience.
Another one of your many options, when looking for information on open and available meteorology jobs is by turning to the internet. What is nice about the using the internet to research meteorology jobs is that you have so many options. For starters, you will want to visit websites that are commonly referred to as career searching websites or job searching websites. These websites often list open jobs all across the county. You should be able to search based on your location. With that in mind, since many of these websites operate on a national level, you may be able to find the perfect meteorologist job or another weather related career if you are willing to relocate.
In keeping with using the internet, you will also want to visit the online websites for your local television and radio stations. Since many of these companies hire meteorologists, you may be able to find job listings directly on their site. Even if you have experience as a meteorologist, you may find another open station position that you can use to help you get your foot in the door. If you don’t already know the addresses for the websites of your local radio and television stations, you should easily be able to find them with a standard internet search.
As previously stated, your local television and radio stations often hire meteorologists. For that reason, you will want to listen to all radio and television news broadcasts, especially those that have a focus on careers. While many radio and television stations will use newspaper classified advertisements and the internet to publicize available job openings, many also do so in house. This advertising is free or at least it should be for the company in question.
Another approach that you can take, when looking to find a meteorologist job or another weather related job involves distributing your resume to companies that use meteorologists, like television and radio news stations. Of course, this approach does have its downsides and it is looked down on by some professionals, but you may never know what opportunities you will find. Many companies, including television and radio news stations, save all job applications and resumes that come their way. These resumes and job applications will likely later be reviewed, should a position open up.
The above mentioned approaches are just a few of the many ways that you can go about finding meteorology jobs and other weather related jobs. As a reminder, be sure to examine the National Guard or Navy, as many of these organizations often rely heavily on weather to properly function.
