HFES Job Fair

The HFES Job Fair at the 67th International Annual Meeting taking place in Washington, DC will provide a forum for employers to find talent and for job seekers to discover potential roles for the next phase in their careers. The Job Fair can help facilitate connections and provides helpful career-related information and resources to both employers and job seekers.

For Job Seekers: FREE

Candidates seeking new career opportunities are encouraged to visit with participating employers in the Job Fair…it’s FREE! Some employers will have literature display tables and personnel for impromptu discussions. Others will engage in on-site interviewing in semi-private booths. Employers, not HFES, organize the scheduling of any formal interviewing taking place on-site in Washington, DC. 

Job seekers attending the International Annual Meeting, do not need to register for the Job Fair, and should bring copies of CVs/resumes and search the online Job Board in advance of the meeting to apply and potentially meet interviewers onsite.  Some employers will conduct on-site job interviews.  Arrangements for these take place directly between the employer and the job seeker.
