The second-annual ACOG Career Fair has a new time and new location designed to make it more convenient for Junior Fellows and other young physicians to attend.
This year’s event will take place Monday from 8 – 10 am at the Marriott Marquis Hotel across the street from the Washington Convention Center. The early start and location will make it easy for Junior Fellows and other young physicians to attend after the Junior Fellows and Young Physicians Breakfast that takes place at the Marriott earlier that morning.
In addition to the Career Fair, ACOG again will offer Career Connections Live, which brings all of ACOG’s online career center services to Annual Meeting attendees.
Career Connection Live will be open from 8 am – 5 pm Saturday, Sunday, and Monday on the L Street Bridge in the convention center. Providing the same features available year-round through ACOG Career Connection, Career Connection Live is designed for anybody no matter their level of experience to learn about other opportunities in the field.
One of the most popular parts of last year’s Career Connection Live was the free review of curricula vitae and resumes, and that service will be available again. Those interested should come to the L Street Bridge booth to schedule a 25-35 minute review and find out what questions recruiters ask and what questions job applicants need to ask during interviews. The booth also has printers so job-seekers can print out CVs and resumes to take to Monday morning’s Career Fair.
The Career Fair makes the job-seeking process easier and more efficient than ever before. On Monday, attendees can network with several potential employers in one location and review literature about potential employment opportunities in a no-pressure environment. If a job seeker finds an intriguing match, the Career Fair will make it easy to set up discrete one-on-one interviews.
More than 30 employers from across the country are expected to have booths at this year’s Career Fair, including:
- CHG Healthcare (Corporate HQ)
- Community Health Systems
- Clinica Family Health
- FDA Office of New Drugs
- Kaiser Permanente – The Permanente Medical Group, Inc. – Northern California
