An in-person Job Fair is being planned during the DPP Meeting this year. The Job Fair will begin on Tuesday, November 9 through Thursday, November 11, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Please review Guidance on DPP 2021 in Pittsburgh for up-to-date information, which includes information on vaccination and mask requirements.
Career Counseling and Resume Help will also be available at the Job Fair, November 10-11. Volunteers will be on hand to give advice on various career paths, and they could also give advice on effective resume writing. To sign up, come to the Job Fair area in the Exhibit Hall of the Convention Center starting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, November 9th. The Desk service will open from Wednesday, November 10th to Thursday, November 11th.
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that the career counseling and resume help desk is not a place to interview for jobs. The purpose of the career counseling and resume desk is for attendees to receive general advice on careers from volunteers. If attendees wish to interview for positions advertised at the job fair, they will need to register for the job fair and apply for those positions formally, as described in the job seeker instructions.
Registration to attend the Job Fair is free of charge to all. In order to register, you must have an account for the APS Job Board.
Registration is now open! The following Employer Packages are available:
This package can be purchased by any employer whether they are attending the in-person event or not.
Note: Should the DPP Meeting move from an in-person meeting to a virtual event, all employers will be able to continue to post jobs on the APS Job Board and have access to the Resume Database until November 30. In addition, If either of the recruitment booth packages were purchased, the employer will also be given a voucher, to use within a year, for one free 30-day job posting on the APS Job Board, a value of $615. This offer will only be available if the in-person DPP Meeting is changed to a virtual event.
A list of employers in this event will be posted on this website. Because most recruiters tend to register close to the event date, attendees should expect the number of participating employers and job postings associated with the event to increase sharply during this time. Check the website frequently for the most up-to-date information.
This information will be made available a week before the event.
