Career Center & Job Fair

The AVS Professional Leadership Committee continues to host the onsite AVS Career Center, open to all attendees, at the International Symposium for the purpose of connecting job seekers with potential employers. The goal is to facilitate contact and networking during the Conference.
 
In addition, in an attempt to create more opportunities for employers to find qualified applicants for job openings and for qualified applicants to have more opportunities to learn about potential employers there will be a Job Fair during the AVS 67th International Symposium and Exhibition October 25-30, 2020 in Denver, CO.
 
As a participating company you can post your job(s) on the bulletin board, display any pertinent company information, interact throughout the day with individuals interested in your company and still host interviews in a semi-private interview room. Greater exposure is guaranteed!

Résumés will be available electronically for employers to review and interview appointments will be scheduled via e-mail messaging. Regular services provided will include collecting job postings/résumés, complete timecards, scheduling/coordinating interviews and providing a message board.  Interviews may be scheduled Tuesday through Friday (Friday interviews will meet at the AVS Registration Counter).
