ASHG is thrilled to announce the return of our in-person Career Fair, to be held during the 2022 Annual Meeting in Los Angeles! The Career Fair will be located in the Exhibit Hall, right behind ASHG Central. New this year we are offering extended opening hours, with Career Fair booths being open the entire time that the Exhibit Hall is open on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. This event will connect innovative, energetic ASHG members looking for jobs with ASHG exhibitors who are actively hiring.
The 2022 Career Fair will offer meeting attendees a chance to meet face-to-face with hiring companies, grow their network, and learn about exciting job opportunities. This is a unique chance for members of the global human genetics and genomics community to speak to hiring managers and employees of various industry partners, research institutions, and universities. Job seekers can look out for additional opportunities including signing up for 1:1 time with a career coach and free professional headshots (more details to come on these opportunities). Meeting attendees of all levels of experience and backgrounds are welcome to attend at no additional cost.
Exhibiting companies that reserve a space at the Career Fair will receive a discounted job post on the ASHG Career Center (ASHG’s year-round online job board). Don’t miss this opportunity to fulfill your job-seeking and -hiring needs, while collaborating with scientific colleagues at ASHG 2022! Hear what exhibiting companies had to say about their experience at the last in-person career fair:
- “[The] career fair was a huge success, as a lab that is looking to hire many people. This was a huge opportunity to find the right candidates that were looking for jobs. PLEASE DO THIS EVERY YEAR!!!”
- “We talked with so many wonderful people. Thank you for having a Career Fair this year. Please keep this going!”
To increase your chances of job exposure, upload your resume/CV or job posting to the ASHG Career Center before you travel to L.A. This resource is available year-round and is the primary location for job postings and resumes at the ASHG meeting. The online Career Center and the Career Fair will be the only way to communicate job postings at ASHG 2022, as there will not be any physical job boards.
