Discover tips from experts on interviewing techniques, learn about the topical areas in which young researchers are engaged, and most importantly, network with experts in the field.

Graduate School Panel – Panel members include representatives from ASCI Level I graduate schools, local and regional graduate schools, fellowship/scholarship reps, and other graduate students. Topics range from how to apply to graduate school, letters of recommendation, how to apply for a fellowship, how to get financial aid, and how to find a mentor.

Young Researcher Panel – graduate students, post-docs, and recent faculty are invited to present their research and discuss how they entered grad school, identified an advisor and project, and offer recommendations. ASCI Level I schools, fellows from the Computational Science Graduate Fellowship Program, Hertz Foundation, National Physical Sciences Consortium, GEM, and local schools will serve as presenters.

Interviewing Techniques Panel – Representatives from industry and federal agencies share tips and techniques on landing the job you want. Informal Q&A follows brief presentations and rules the day.

Career Fair – Industry and academia are invited to host a table at the Career Fair to showcase exciting opportunities, recruit, interview, and hire. Students are encouraged to practice the interviewing techniques gleaned from the previous day’s session, to present their resumes, and to focus on what educational assets are required for the career of their choice.
