The AMS Board for Private Sector Meteorologists has designed this as a premium mentorship program to create and foster one-on-one personal interactions tailored to the needs of participating students. The program is intended to increase students’ awareness of opportunities in the private sector of the weather and climate professional enterprise and help them realize their professional growth potential. Each participating student regularly interacts with a private sector professional unrelated to the professional’s current vocation or position. Ultimately, the success of this program depends on the individual commitment of each participant, mentor and student, toward the betterment of the individual and our profession. Both the mentor and student will benefit most from the valuable two-way exchange of information during each interaction, and through maintaining a consistent, ongoing and open dialogue.
