Employers and Recruiters

The 2021 Annual Meeting Career Fairs and all related networking activities provide employers with the opportunity to meet and collect resumes from interested job seekers from highly seasoned professionals in the academic or industrial space to freshly minted PhD’s and master’s students just entering the workforce. Employers can arrange public and private LIVE chats from their own virtual booth and exchange information with candidates. Employers can also choose to schedule and arrange private on-site interviews on the days following Sunday’s Career Fair. In Anaheim you can meet with candidates in person and schedule interviews using our scheduling tools.

Employers participating in the In-Person Annual Meeting Career Fair will be able to:

  • Provide your recruitment materials in a fun and energetic Career Fair-type setting
  • Schedule your own on-site interviews at reserved tables or private interview booths
  • Promote your organization and meet highly qualified, diverse candidates
  • Connect with job seekers before the meeting

Participation in the Annual Meeting Career Fair raises the visibility of your organization with meeting attendees and registered job seekers. All Career Fair events are widely advertised, not only to job seekers already signed up in INFORMS Career Center, but also to thousands of professionals and students attending the meeting both in person and virtually.
