The AMS Career Fair is located in Exhibit Hall 3 of the Austin Convention Center. The Career Fair’s hours of operation are Sunday, 5:00–7:00 p.m., and Monday, 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m., with an opening reception for attendees of the Student Conference held on Saturday, 5 January, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Career Fair provides employers seeking qualified personnel and individuals seeking employment an opportunity to interact. Please visit the Career Fair Information Desk during the hours of operation for details.

Information for Job and Graduate School Seekers

The Career Fair is an excellent opportunity to interview on-site, one-on-one, with organizations looking to recruit highly talented individuals.  View available full-time and part-time job opportunities, network with government agency and private industry employees, and meet recruiters from some of the country’s best graduate school programs -- all in one convenient location, and all at no cost.  The Career Fair is open to all attendees of the Annual Meeting and the Student Conference so we encourage you to stop by, whether you are soon-to-be graduate, a young professional, or a seasoned pro!

On the evening of Saturday, January 5, the Career Fair will open with a reception for attendees of the 12th Annual AMS Student Conference. This is a great opportunity for you to meet with employer and graduate school representatives in an informal setting and to schedule interviews for later in the week.  There is no cost to attend this opening night reception but you must be registered for the Student Conference.  If you are registered for the AMS Annual Meeting but are not eligible for the Student Conference, we encourage you to attend  the Career Fair during its regular hours of operation (Sunday 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m., and Monday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

While it is not necessary to register for participation in the Career Fair, you are encouraged to submit a copy of your resume to AMS Headquarters as an attached Word document or PDF to careerfair@ametsoc.org.  All resumes that are received by December 21 will be forwarded to interested employers and graduate schools after the meeting.  If you cannot meet the deadline of December 21, you may drop off your resume during the Career Fair's hours of operation.  All resumes will be on display at the Career Fair Information Desk for the week of the Annual Meeting. 

Please note that we cannot accept resumes from those not registered for either the Student Conference or the Annual Meeting.
