For ACS Members, here’s how registration works:
1. Register for the Career Fair to indicate to the employers that you will be onsite attending the event.
2. Build Your Candidate Profile.
By creating a complete profile in the system, you are allowing attending employers to discover you and potentially invite you to an interview. The more information you provide and the earlier you complete this process affords the best chance of being found.
3. Search for Jobs
Search and apply for all jobs by keywords that you are interested in. Note: jobs are searchable by everyone but only registered ACS Members may communicate with recruiters in advance and request interviews and meetings.
4. Request an Interview or forward your resume
From the job detail, you may request an interview or forward your resume for selected positions to engage in on-site interviews. If an employer is interested, they will contact you with instructions on next steps.
Bring plenty of hard copies of your resume and a backup of your resume on a flash drive. Computers will be provided with limited access. While at the meeting, consider stopping by the ACS career consulting area located across from the entrance of the exhibition Hall to have your resume reviewed or participate in a mock interview.
6. Check Your Account
Check your email to find messages from recruiters and to confirm locations and times for your onsite interviews. Interviews are 15 minutes in length.
