Seeking Suggestions: How Can We Expand SIAM Career Fairs?
We’ve been putting on career fairs at many meetings for 15+ years, and are looking for YOUR suggestions on how to expand and make them better. These events are geared towards students and professionals looking for information about careers in industry or national labs and are a great learning and networking opportunity. Tell us what and who you would like to see at the next SIAM Career Fair. Thank you in advance!
