SC11 Student Job Fair

The SC11 Broader Engagement (BE) program will host the Student Job/Opportunity Fair from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16. This face-to-face event is  open to all students participating in the SC11 conference and will enable students interested in graduate fellowships, internships, summer job, graduate school assistant positions or permanent employment to meet with potential employers. The 2010 Student Job/Opportunity Fair had employers from research labs, academic institutions, recruiting agencies and private industry who met with students to discuss about research, employment, internship and co-op opportunities. We expect this year’s event to be equally successful.

Participating organizations will have the opportunity to interact with the students in computer science, information systems, scientific computing and high performance computing related fields. The registration fee for exhibitors is $100. However, donors to the SC Communities Programs are entitled to complimentary registration for this event. Organizations planning to participate in the SC11 Student Job/ Fair are asked to confirm their participation by sending an email to by Tuesday, November 1. The name of organization’s representative(s) who will be present at the event should also be included in the confirmation email.

  • Use action verbs to describe your activities

Don't –

  • Use multiple/difficult fonts
  • Abbreviate
  • Use passive statements
  • Include generic interest unrelated to the job you are seeking
