About Fresh AJ
My weather blog, Fresh AJ, is about giving you juicy insights into the weather industry!
I’ve always felt the problem in meteorology is that there is limited guidance for students and new graduates about which career path they should choose. Same for career professionals who want to move up in their careers or make a career transition to another meteorology sector (heck, even out of meteorology). The guidance counselors you meet generally don’t know the ins and outs of the weather space because they haven’t worked in them. Google searches of each sector on the internet basically describe the industry but do not give you the juicy insights that most of you should know.
My goal is to try and fill that void and give you a real and honest sense of each weather sector. I want to help give you a competitive edge in an environment where there are very few meteorology job openings.
In my blog, I’ll provide you with secrets, tips, and success stories on how to stand out from the competition in each sector…whether its in aviation or energy, TV or for the government, private consulting or your own weather start up, storm chasing, and weather derivatives.
Some of the topics that I will discuss in my blog are: salaries, work/life balance on the job, current/new meteorology sectors, roles, how to land meteorology and/or non-meteorology jobs, top cities and universities for meteorologists, along with personal stories and experiences of my own journey! You’ll also see and hear interviews from professionals in each sector so you know what you are looking for, what it takes, and where you fit in!
I’ll also bring up my thoughts on current events in meteorology, whether controversial or not. You’ll get the real deal here.
