Company Spotlights

Visit the exhibition floor to hear companies share a 15-minute presentation on “a day in the life” at their company. You will hear about job openings, their EDI programs, and a short video to further illustrate what their company has to offer a potential hire.

This was a popular feature at the 2022 exhibition, so look for a return in 2023.

The Job Fair: learn about the benefits to the job seeker


For candidates
Whether you're looking for a better job, re-entering the workforce, or just starting out, plan to visit the Job Fair. Come prepared to discuss your skills and talents with industry leading companies. Free to participate but registration is required.

 

What you get

  • Gain visibility with hiring companies
  • A variety of employers and hundreds of job opportunities
  • Network with employers and industry peers
  • Post your CV/resume online

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

 

Tips

  • 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.
