    2017 -2018 PSRF Board

    After such a successful event, the PSRF Board had decided to hold another Career Fair in 2018.  Although the details are still being finalized, please save the evening of Thursday, March 1st.

    Last year’s Career Fair, held on February 9, 2017 was a very well attended event.  We had 14 area companies and well over 50 job seekers participate.  While at the event, PSRF Board members were available to help mentor those looking for work in the research industry.  We heard great things from both employers and job hunters.  As a matter of fact, we are aware of three people who landed new positions thanks to this event. 

    Companies who attended our first Career Fair in in 2017 included:

    PSRF is thrilled that we can provide this free service to the local research community and look forward to repeating this success on Thursday, March 1, 2018. 

    Although its early, if you are an employer interested in setting up a table at this event, please contact Svetlana Gershman our Special Events Coordinator and she can add you to the list.
