(Guelph, Ontario Canada)
Please help with my job search. My name is Silas and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, in the Environmental Earth/Atmosphere Science program. My career goal is to work in the meteorology field. This summer, for my second coop work term, I am interested in working for a private company that specializes in weather prediction and forecasting.
I was wondering if there is any possibility of working with StuffIntheAir.com. Also, perhaps you know of some contacts who may consider hiring a coop student.
Please respond with any possible positions in forecasting or apprenticing a meteorologist. It would be greatly appreciated.Barry's Response
Very flattering - I must say. It may not look like but StuffintheAir.com is just a one man operation. And a very part time one at that.
My background consists largely of working with environmental engineering consulting companies, of which there are many in Ontario. I have done a fair amount of air quality modeling
and regulatory reporting, and this may be a good career path for you to explore during a coop term.
If your studies are interdisciplinary in nature, I remember many students of this sort serving terms years ago in the research offices of Environment Canada. I wish I knew how to find those opportunities for you, but you might explore jobs.gc.ca, workopolis.com or monster.ca for starters.
I'm sure you already know about them. Good luck with the job search. Search
