I am surprised bc she is a humanities lover mostly - but told me yesterday she would like to look into careers and college majors for these subjects.


I see atmospheric science and various environmental and civil engineering? as possibilities. I'm out of my depth on what to google next.


Other ideas? Thanks!

I took these from the skills shortage list in the UK. There is a special category for geologists and meterologists! and a category for civil engineering. So apparently a very good field to go into from the point of view of getting a job!
