Career Fair

The event begins with a formal Career Fair meet & greet from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, October 16. After employers and jobseekers network and exchange information, INFORMS will be holding two interview days on Monday, October 17, and Tuesday, October 18, from 8am to 5pm.

Individuals participating in the INFORMS Career Center activities and the Career Fair will be able to:

  • Gather materials and make vital connections in a fun and energetic setting
  • Meet one-on-one with top employer representatives who are looking for candidates like you
  • See the job postings from the 60+ top employers expected to participate
  • Drop off your resume if you are unable to connect in person
  • Qualify to have your resume reviewed by veteran INFORMS members

Those who register will have the ability to view jobs in advance of the event, contact employers, gather information, make connections, chat with recruiters, and be seen by organizations. Increase your visibility by creating or updating your profile on the INFORMS Career Center and uploading a current copy of your resume. Employers will be able to review your profile and resume before the Career Fair so having them filled out and available increases your chances of being selected for an interview on Monday or Tuesday.
