Tips

  • Data analysis: As a Meteorologist, you will be dealing with massive amounts of raw data, including numbers, figures and statistics, and processing that into meaningful information. Your CV should, therefore, put a lot of importance on your data analysis ability, including the storing, retrieving, inspecting, transforming and modelling of data.

Good Luck!
