Career Center

The AVS Professional Leadership Committee will be hosting the AVS Career Center, open to all attendees, at the International Symposium for the purpose of connecting job seekers with potential employers. The goal is to facilitate contact and networking during the Conference.

In addition, in an attempt to create more opportunities for employers to find qualified applicants for job openings and for qualified applicants to have more opportunities to learn about potential employers there will be a Job Fair during the AVS 59th International Symposium and Exhibition, October 28-November 2, 2012 in Tampa, FL.

The Job Fair continues grow each year.  As a participating company you can post your job(s) on the bulletin board, display any pertinent company information, interact throughout the day with individuals interested in your company and still host interviews in a semi-private interview room. Greater exposure is guaranteed!

New this year at the AVS Career Center - Résumés will be available electronically for employers to review and interview appointments will be scheduled via e-mail messaging.  Regular services provided will include collecting job postings/résumés, complete timecards, scheduling/coordinating interviews and providing a message board.  Interviews may be scheduled Tuesday through Friday (Friday interviews will be at a location TBD between the Employers and Applicants as necessary).
