2014-10-15 18:36:00.000 – Mike Carmon, Weather Observer/Education Specialist


Let me take the time to talk to you all about an incredible opportunity here at the Mount Washington Observatory!

Are you looking to gain some real-world experience in the field of meteorology? How about at a weather station located atop a mountain, world-famous for it’s extreme weather?

Our internship program is incredibly unique, and is a great opportunity to get invaluable experience in a fully-operational mountaintop weather station!

It’s a great foot in the door too, as all six full-time observers currently on staff started at the Mount Washington Observatory as summit interns. So, if this piques your interest, head on over to the application page and apply before the deadline TODAY, before it’s too late. The winter internship runs from early January through early May, and gives you an in-depth taste of Mount Washington at its most thrilling time of year!

Speaking from experience, being a former intern during the fall of 2008, it’s a time of your life you would never forget!
