NCAS-M will conduct center-wide professional skills development workshops (virtual and face-to-face) during the academic year and summer that will focus on career/professional skill development.

Students will be exposed to a variety of professional/career development skills needed for the workplace that include leadership development, goal-setting, networking, effective communication, and competencies required to work at NOAA. Students will also be exposed to NOAA scientists and others who will provide information on NOAA-mission relevant workforce experiences and expectations required for workplace success.
