Note: The Job Fair will be held in conjunction with the SPIE Photonics West Exhibition. An 'Exhibit-Only' badge or any other type of Photonics West 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.
