SC Job Fair: @SCjobfair
October 21, 2016 Deadline extended to November 4, 2016: Registration Deadline for Organizations
November 14, 2016: Resume Submission Deadline for Participants
The SC16 Students@SC Program will again host the Student/Postdoc Job Fair. This face-to-face event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, November 16, in Rooms 251ABDE of the Salt Palace Convention Center. The Student/Postdoc Job Fair will be open to all students and postdocs attending SC16, giving them an opportunity to meet with potential employers. Previous SC job fair employers include research labs, academic institutions, recruiting agencies and private industry who met with students to discuss graduate fellowships, internships, summer jobs, co-op opportunities, graduate school assistant positions and permanent employment. We expect this year’s event to be equally successful.
Resumes submitted by students will be provided to organizations participating in the job fair. Students should also bring copies of their resumes to the event.
Participating organizations will have the opportunity to interact with the students in fields related to computer science, information systems, scientific computing, and high-performance computing. Ideally, each organization will send two representatives, one from HR as well as a technical staff member.

Participating students and postdocs
The Student/Postdoc Job Fair event is open to all students and postdocs attending SC16. In previous years, students and postdocs who wanted to facilitate connections with participating organizations submitted up-to-date resumes before the SC conference. Students and postdocs registered for SC16 will receive instructions on how to submit their resumes via email.
