Here at the One Day, One Job headquarters, we’re hunkering down in preparation for a Nor’easter that is about to drop snow on us like Paula Dean drops another stick of butter into one of her recipes. Of course there are no snow days in the blogosphere, so we figured we’d go with what Mother Nature gives us and discuss entry-level job opportunities at The Weather Channel.

We probably don’t need to tell you what The Weather Channel does; however, you might find it interesting that they have 3 separate business units – The Weather Channel, TWC Interactive (their online and wireless presence) and TWC Media (their advertising sales division). Whether you’re a weather junkie or fascinated by media, TWC definitely has some opportunities that will raise your dew point.

As soon as The Weather Channel’s Careers site loads, you’ll probably be annoyed. They thought it would be nice to greet you with music, but you’ll probably want to turn it off by scrolling down to the lower right-hand corner of the page. After that’s out of the way, you’ll see their Flash interface, which looks nice, but leaves us unable to link out to individual pages. With no links, we’ll just tell you a few things to look out for: the Top 10 Reasons You’ll Love Working at The Weather Channel, information on their Green Initiative, a letter from their President regarding diversity, and a full list of benefits and perks. It should be pretty easy to find what you need.

We’re not sure what was more disappointing, the lack of usability on The Weather Channel’s job postings or the fact that you can’t just jump in at the entry-level and become a tv meteorologist. Their applicant tracking system – even though it’s not in Flash – won’t let us link to individual jobs. Even worse, there’s no search feature and TWC’s choice of job titles pretty much sucks. Figuring out which jobs are appropriate for a new college grad requires browsing through each position and scanning for required experience. Lucky for you, we are going to highlight a few (not all) of the most interesting jobs that appear to be entry-level appropriate.

If you want to be a TV Meteorologist or an Editor, you’re probably out of luck – they want 3 years’ experience (but don’t let that keep you from trying). Instead, apply to be a Radio Broadcast Meteorologist or a Production Assistant, since these are entry-level friendly positions that will put you on the career path towards being a part of bigger things at The Weather Channel. Speaking of big things, did you know that TWC has a top 10 cable channel, a top 10 website, and a top 3 mobile site? That means that beyond getting the weather right and delivering your daily forecasts, they need to leverage their popularity through advertising. That’s why there are quite a few positions like Campaign Specialist (no, you won’t be predicting the weather for Obama’s travel plans) and Sales Associate (why do they give their employees the same title as someone who works a cash register?). These advertising-related jobs feed directly into The Weather Channel’s bottom line, which means you’re just as important as the weather guy. If you love the weather, but didn’t study meteorology, these jobs are probably more approachable and realistic for you to apply for.

Most of The Weather Channel’s job offerings are based out of their Atlanta, GA headquarters, but there are a few that are in other offices like New York, Chicago, or Detroit. And for those of you who always wanted to be a star, remember back to the Boy Meets World episode where Eric Matthews fills in for a no-show weatherman. If there is a flu outbreak in The Weather Channel office, maybe they’ll put you on camera after the 12 people in front of you for weatherman succession go down ill – even if you’re in advertising.

Note: On April 23rd we revisited entry-level jobs at The Weather Channel.

    History, Florida State University Florida state old logo Florida State University Florida State University, one of the largest and oldest of the 12 institutions of higher learning in the State University System of Florida, had its beginning as early as 1823 when the Territorial Legislature began to plan a higher education system.
