Whether you're looking for a better job, re-entering the workforce or just starting out, plan to visit the Job Fair at DSS - come prepared to discuss your skills and talents with nearly 20 industry leading companies.

  • Nearly 20 employers and hundreds of job opportunities

  • Post your CV/Resume online!

NOTE: Many of the positions posted at this job fair require an active security clearance or the ability to acquire one. The Job Fair will be held in conjunction with the SPIE DSS 2014 Exhibition. An 'Exhibition Only' registration badge or any other type of DSS badge is needed to enter the exhibit hall.

Tip: Upload your CV or resume in advance to be found by employers. In-person attendance is not required to upload your resume.

Be prepared to tell the recruiter about yourself in less than two minutes. That may not seem like much time but it's all you'll probably get. Write down everything you want them to know about you and then condense it as much as possible. Practice it until you feel comfortable and ask everyone you know to listen to your tale. During these practice sessions focus on talking slowly, because when you're nervous you're bound to speed up. Remember, the more you practice, the less likely you are to make a mistake during the actual event.


Exhibiting in the DSS Job Fair is a great way to meet qualified engineers and technical talent face-to-face, strengthen your employment brand and make direct hires.

Over the years SPIE has worked with more than 3,000 companies, recruiters and research institutions to help them find technicians, technical sales people, scientists and engineers. Each year hundreds of companies and research institutions participate in SPIE Job Fairs, onsite and online.
