Angel Enriquez, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Glasgow, Montana, shares his insights on valuable opportunities for career advancement in meteorology on the Clear Skies Ahead podcast, with monthly episode releases.
“In college, I think it was the extracurriculars that I did outside of school that were the most beneficial. It’s one thing to do your coursework, fulfill your requirements, but that’s not going to make you stand out in a resume. It’s what else you can bring to the table, and for me it was doing volunteer work. I sought out an assistantship with the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Getting to network with people is something else that makes a difference, even if it’s just a quick minute or two chat. Sometimes that chat can carry on years later. And it’s always beneficial to get to know new people.”
