Our Analytics Career Fair brings dozens of top employers to Baltimore.


Since 1729, Baltimore has served as a vital hub of discovery and growth in Maryland. Located within an easy distance of both Philadelphia and Washington D.C., Baltimore – birthplace of the U.S. National Anthem – is among those cities that played a defining role in the founding of the United States. Since then “Charm City”, as Baltimore is appropriately nicknamed, has grown from a bustling port city, to an industrial center, to a community focused on service, and the current home of INFORMS.

We look forward to welcoming you home in 2018!
