The Job Fair is held in conjunction with SPIE Optics + Photonics Exhibition.



  • Upload your CV or resume in advance to be found by employers.
  • Be prepared to tell the recruiter about yourself in less than two minutes. That may not seem like much time but it's all you'll probably get.
  • Write down everything you want them to know about you and then condense it as much as possible.
  • Practice it until you feel comfortable and ask everyone you know to listen to your story.
  • During these practice sessions focus on talking slowly, because when you're nervous you're bound to speed up.
  • Remember, the more you practice, the less likely you are to make a mistake during the actual conversation.
