Venn Diagram - Forge Strong Relationships, Build Future Collaborations, Enable Competitive Recruitment all overlapping

This fall PNNL is hosting its first ever virtual career fair as a way to help jump start the job search process for over 300 post graduate research associates we employ. You may be familiar with the “post doctorate research associate” position found at many national laboratories and universities, but additionally we have post masters and post bachelors employees. They are all limited term employees searching for right place to make an impact in their future careers.

This career fair will help forge strong relationships and build future collaborations between Pacific Northwest National Lab and companies around the country. As we send researchers to you, they can reach back to us to form long-lasting research ties. We will help enable competitive recruitment opportunities for you within our candidate pool of young enthusiastic researchers.

A virtual career fair differs from a traditional career fair in that you don’t have to pay to travel to Richland, WA in order to recruit our bright talent! Instead, companies and post graduates provide research keywords, type of work (e.g., research, law/policy, management track), and type of company (academic, national laboratory, industry) when they sign up. We will do match-making based on these choices and package up relevant resumes and LinkedIn profile pages to send out to the companies.
