Career Days Overview
Meteorology Career Days is a departmental career fair. The career fair is designed to expose students at all academic levels (freshman through seniors at the undergraduate level and all graduate students) to the range of career opportunities available to them with a degree in meteorology.
We encourage companies to attend who may not even have any current open positions at the time of the event. Career Days is structured so those companies can choose to only attend the opening night reception, which is just a chance for them to get some exposure with the students via a brief presentation and informal networking. It's a great networking opportunity for the students as well.
Career Days is typically held for two days, with an optional third day for any company wishing to do longer second interviews. The format of the event is as follows:
Formal 1/2 hour interviews held at the Bank of America Career Services Center. Last year approximately 70 interviews were scheduled.
Very brief evening presentations by each of the company recruiters At The Nittany Lion Inn (all students are encouraged to attend this event). (Approximately 75-100 students attend the evening presentations).
Informal mixer with students, company representatives, and meteorology faculty and staff. Food and beverages will be provided.
Formal 1/2 hour interviews continue at the Bank of America Career Services Center
Meteorology Career Days is free to all company representatives (except for covering their travel costs).
