Posted November 10, 2018 06:07:23In an era when many jobs are being filled by automation and machines are displacing humans, a meteorologist is becoming a more important asset than ever.
But how to get there?
In the age of automation, the demand for qualified meteorologists is growing.
But as automation improves, many job opportunities in the field of meteorology are getting harder to find.
Meteorologists in the U.S. are being targeted by an increasingly hostile climate and climate-related pandemics, and even those who do remain are finding it harder to get jobs, said David J. Brown, professor of meteorological science at Ohio State University and a former deputy director of the National Weather Service.
“There are fewer and fewer jobs for the profession,” he said.
“There is no shortage of qualified candidates and the demand is skyrocketing.”
The demand for meteorologists has soared.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in 2016, the number of meteorologists who were employed in the United States surpassed 1 million.
And while the number who are actively looking for a job has dropped to about 5,000, the vast majority of jobs are in the service industry, said Brown.
But even those seeking to become meteorologists have struggled to find jobs.
In fact, some states and even countries have stepped in to help.
A couple of years ago, New York State and Maryland passed laws mandating meteorologists undergo training, including one for people with some type of training in meteorological fields.
In New Jersey, the state has also invested in the development of training centers to help fill the shortage of trained meteorologists.
But even with those efforts, many of those who are seeking to get into the field are still struggling.
“People with some meteorological training are still going to be left out,” said Michael Hirsch, a senior meteorologist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, North Carolina.
“The demand is just really, really out there.”
For instance, in Colorado, there are no meteorologists available at the state’s weather centers because there aren’t enough qualified meteorological employees to fill the positions.
But the Colorado Bureau of Meteorology has hired some people to fill some of those positions.
“We’re getting the people that we need to fill those positions,” said Brian Cogan, a deputy director at the bureau who is also a professor of geosciences at the University of Colorado.
“And there’s an increasing number of people who are not qualified.
There’s a shortage of the people who do meteorological work.
That’s one of the things that makes it so difficult to fill.”
Meteorology is an inherently difficult field to learn, said Hirsch.
There are only a few meteorologists on staff at the Denver airport.
That leaves meteorologists with no training.
There aren’t a lot of experienced meteorologists in many countries, either.
The United States has a long tradition of meteorologizing its weather.
In fact, it has had a long history of meteorologist jobs.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis recently released a report that looked at how many meteorologists were employed nationwide.
The report found that there were 7.5 million meteorologists working in the country, but that in many of the states with the most meteorological workers there were fewer than a million.
In the states where there were the most jobs, the overall unemployment rate was 7.6 percent.
The overall unemployment rates for people in the labor force was 6.7 percent.
The unemployment rate for people without a college degree is higher, at 10.4 percent.
In Colorado, the unemployment rate is 12.4 percentage points higher than the national rate.
But that’s not the only problem.
“The labor market is just not that good,” said Brown, the Ohio State professor.
“It’s just not.
I think that’s one thing that we’ve got to keep reminding ourselves about.”
The shortage of people to provide the weather data that keeps us safe is a real problem.
And that’s the real issue that is affecting the quality of life.
And it’s not just Colorado.
It’s just like any industry that’s experiencing a shortage, said Janae Henn, a doctoral student at the Weather Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
“And it’s getting worse,” she said.
Henn said the shortage is affecting more than just meteorologists, either because the workforce is shrinking or because many people are retiring or moving out of the state.
“So it’s a really real problem for the state,” she explained.
Even though there are so many people that need to get a job, it’s just that hard to find a job.
“People with a meteorological background are really hard to fill,” Henn said.
Brown said the most obvious way to fill a position is to hire someone who has some experience in meteorologic work. And when
