The 2021 Annual Meeting Career Fair is an ideal place to find a new member for your team! After last year’s incredibly successful virtual sessions, we are happy to provide another opportunity to match qualified candidates to top job positions in a flexible format. Both the in-person and virtual options provide you with the opportunity to interview qualified industry and academic candidates in analytics, data science, AI, machine learning, and more. However, registering for BOTH options will increase your chances to meet the right candidates.

Career Fair Experience

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

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

  • Provide your recruitment materials and display your brand in a fun and energetic 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

Virtual Annual Meeting Career Fair Booths include:

  • An employer profile page showcasing your organization’s unique brand
  • Group Sessions: Option for employers to communicate with participants in a group format and personalized one-on-one interactions
  • Private Sessions: Option for employers to communicate in private chat windows for more personalized interaction
  • Screen share presentation capability to conduct online presentations to the attendees
  • Multi-recruiter access to search resumes, preselect, and capture resumes of registered candidates
  • Unrestricted time frame to filter and export candidates’ profile details and contact info
  • Unlimited job postings
