Geology Field Camp (general information)

HAZWOPR training – This was mentioned as a potential way to set yourself apart from other geoscience candidates when you’re starting out. I’ve linked to the OSHA site for more info, but before opting for an expensive online or in person HAZWOPR course, be sure to check your university or local community college to see if they offer a cheaper 40-hr HAZWOPR course.

National Oceanic Atmospheric and Atmospheric Administration – NOAA – This is the government entity KT mentioned that she wish she’d applied to when younger. You can search for NOAA job openings at USAjobs.

Personal finance books recommended for college students/recent grads

Automatic Wealth for Grads by Michael Masterson – There are lots of gimmicky books out there about finance. If you’re looking for a no non-sense guide, I think this book is a great place to start (especially if you are new to having serious conversations about personal finance, and wealth building).
