About This Workshop

Applying to jobs and fellowships can be a daunting challenge for early career professionals; however, there are strategies you can use to develop a strong application package. Join NOAA Sea Grant and partners to gain hands-on experience drafting and submitting a competitive application package. 

As part of our mission,  Sea Grant provides education and support throughout students' careers to create a diverse workforce representative of the demographics of our nation. 

During the workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience with the application process from start to finish (reviewing the job/fellowship description, putting together a strong and competitive application, requesting letters of reference, communicating with program staff, submitting the application successfully and the interview process), and have the opportunity to receive feedback from program managers that may help enhance the quality of student applications.

The NSGO will sponsor 50 students to attend this workshop free of cost.
