Inspire the Next Generation of Earth and Space Scientists: Support the Austin Endowment for Student Travel
A new year is just around the corner. And with it comes the promise of new beginnings and opportunities for personal and professional growth. 2019 is also AGU’s Centennial year – a time for our community to celebrate the scientific advances made in Earth and space science over the past 100 years. For me, the advent of Centennial leads me to consider how we can make sure that our science …

This post originally appeared in AGU’s On the Job blog. A successful career can take many routes and directions. And a career, unlike a job, is more than just a resume or C.V. builder. It is the development of skills built over time and is shaped by many jobs and professional or volunteer roles. Each month, the AGU Career Center releases a new profile in the ongoing series Paths Through …
