In-Person Career Fair

The in-person event begins with a formal Career Fair from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, October 24. After employers and jobseekers have had a chance to network and exchange information, we will be holding two interview days on Monday, October 25, and Tuesday, October 26, from 9am to 5pm.

If you plan on attending in-person, please create a profile on the INFORMS Career Center and upload a current copy of your resume. Employers will be able to see these materials in advance of the Career Fair, and doing so increases your chances of being selected for an interview on Monday or Tuesday.
