One of several professional development programs at Photonics West this year was “Getting a Job in 2011 and Beyond,” a panel discussion held for the benefit of employment seekers of all stripes. Held in conjunction with the SPIE Job Fair, which itself was more successful than any in many years, the discussion provided expertise on job search tactics from people directly involved in the hiring process.
