The APS March Job Expo will be in Central Time (CT)
For the first time ever, this year’s Job Expo will be held virtually, in conjunction with the APS March Meeting. The Job Expo is a recruiting event organized by the American Physical Society (APS) to put employers in touch with job seekers, many of whom have recently graduated or are nearing completion of their degrees. Through the platform Gather.Town, employers and job seekers will be able to interact with each other through video chats and other great and exciting ways that are simple, yet effective.
You are not required to register for the general APS March Meeting to participate! Participation is free for Job Seekers.
