The Career Fair at SIAM Conferences: A Student Guide
Monday, July 10, 2006
7:15 PM - 9:15 PM
Career Fairs are usually one day events set up to facilitate contacts of employers with career fair participants. Employers are there to recruit employees. They may or may not have current jobs, but if you are interested in looking for a job or finding out more about a career opportunity, don't miss the chance to make contacts and speak with knowledgeable individuals from a range of employers.
