CAREER PATHWAYS AND EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE TALENT POOL PROGRAMS WITH THE AMERICAN GEOPHYSICAL UNION
The American Geophysical Union's (AGU) Talent Pool programs provide numerous awareness, engagement, and professional preparation opportunities for geoscience graduate students. STEM career paths are often disjointed and nonlinear, but AGU's suite of programming is designed to provide a series of touch points between students and AGU at any point in the calendar year.
