For Career Fair Attendees
The career fair will feature representatives from nonacademic employers from industry and government. These representatives will be prepared to discuss with you the opportunities for internships, postdoctoral appointments and full-time jobs at their organizations.
The career fair will feature morning and afternoon sessions during which you will have the opportunity to speak with the representatives of the participating organizations. In addition to these sessions, there may be career panel over lunch and a professional development workshop and reception in the evening.
In order to maximize the value of your discussion, SIAM recommends that you take time beforehand to learn about the organizations that interest you.
