After spending years honing specific expertise on a certain path, it’s hard to see there is anything else out there. And that is when you start to feel “stuck” in your job.
There are meteorologists across the country (and not just on TV) who love to blow things out of proportion. Fear sells. A quick scan through Facebook during a hurricane shines a spotlight on it pretty quickly.
In order to work in one career (and one workplace) for many years, you have to get along with all kinds of people.
I never noticed how much people “small talk” about weather until I became a meteorologist.
Technological advancements completely changed the way I did my job from 1995 to 2020.
“It must be nice to have a job where you get paid to lie!” – I have lost count of the number of times I’ve heard that “joke.”
When I first started out in TV my goal was to get a job in Chicago but what I quickly learned was you couldn’t get a job straight out of college in such a huge city.
Working through a hurricane is much different than just living through a hurricane.
