Meet Your Career Needs at the On-Site Career Center
In Houston, the Career Center will be located in the Exhibit & Poster Hall at ASHG Central and will be open during exhibit hours (Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday, October 18 from 10 am - 4:30 pm, and Friday, October 19 from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm). Stop by to receive a list of exhibitors who are hiring, information about career services that ASHG offers, or just to say hi.
The meeting program includes several career development events and workshops for trainees and early-career scientists that are available now.
As you’re walking through the Exhibit & Poster Hall, look for exhibitors wearing the “Industry Scientist” ribbon. Anyone wearing the ribbon can ‘talk science’ with you, wants to hear about your work, and tell you about what they have to offer.
