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 will 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.

As we get closer to the career fair, SIAM will collect one page resumes and make them available to the representatives of the organizations that will be present at the career fair.
