Check out the latest internship postings from NOAA.


Happy Groundhog Day! Unfortunately, it looks like we’re headed for 6 more weeks of winter according to Punxsutawney Phil. That really aggravates me, so I think that I’m done trusting the rodent for my weather prediction. Last year we recommended working for the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club on One Day One Job, but this year we want to lead you towards a career where you’ll actually be able to predict the weather. That’s why we want you to take a look at internships with the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration. NOAA is a government agency “that enriches life through science,” which makes them almost the exact opposite of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club. NOAA’s responsibilities range from “daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce.” In fact, “NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product.”

NOAA has a great video that does a nice job of telling their story, so we thought we’d spare you some reading and embed it below. (If you’re reading via e-mail or RSS, you might need to click through to view the video).

So what about internships with NOAA? You can find all kinds of information about working at NOAA on their Careers page. Unfortunately their Recruitment Events Calendar hasn’t been updated lately, but you can still check out their Career Fields and What NOAA Has to Offer pages. What you’re really looking for though – NOAA’s internships, you can find on their Student Opportunities page. This links to Internships (Graduate, Undergraduate, and High School), Special Opportunities, and Educational Partnerships. There’s also a separate site for NOAA’s Minority Faculty and Student Intern Research Program that you might want to check out. There are all kinds of opportunities to get started on a career in Earth Sciences with NOAA, so you’ll need to peruse all of their offerings to find a good fit for you. NOAA’s internships and other programs are too varied to generalize about here, so you’ll need to use the links that I just mentioned to get more details about what kind of internships are offered, where they’re located, whether or not they’re paid, and how you can apply.
