Thinking of a new job or changing careers? The MIT Alumni Association’s Virtual Career Fair, January 29, will connect you to some 20 companies and help you explore new options. Best of all, you can do it online via your computer, tablet, or mobile device from anywhere.
The virtual career fair, designed for mid- and early-career alumni, uses a platform designed by vendor Brazen Careerist. Registered alumni can meet representatives of some 20 companies in virtual chat rooms for one-on-one informal interviews during the fair, which runs from noon to 4:00 p.m. EST. A time limit on each encounter will keep the process moving. You can explore particular job opportunities or discuss your long-term career interests.
Register now to secure your place. Then you can add a resume, a brief work history, or your LinkedIn profile. Or simply research the companies.
What do we know about the companies? This is an MIT-exclusive opportunity so all of the companies want to discuss job opportunities with Institute alumni and all have current jobs available. You can learn more about the companies, including Medtronic, Two Sigma, Oracle, Solar City, Yelp, and Blue Origin, on the registration site.

“MIT alumni are some of the most sought-after talent around the globe, and, as this unique population continues to develop and manage their own career paths, the Alumni Association is seeking new ways to support their career exploration and transition,” says Ellen Stahl, Alumni Career Services program director.
