Network in the Exhibit Hall

Organizations marked with a 'handshake' symbol in the exhibitor list will have handouts indicating open positions and other information about their organization available at their booth. This is a great networking opportunity.


Identify Yourself as a Job Seeker

Let employers know that you are on the hunt for a job by asking for a job seeker ribbon to wear on your badge and/or requesting a job seeker flag to place on your poster board! This will alert hiring managers and organizations with open positions that you are a job seeker making it that much easier for potential employers to reach out to you.
