Student Conference Career Fair
The AMS student conference is intended for junior and senior undergraduates and all graduate students, and will focus on interdisciplinary topics and wide-ranging opportunities in the atmospheric and related sciences. Sessions include invited speakers from the private, academic, and government sectors. A Career Fair and networking evening is scheduled to provide a forum for students to personally interact with professionals who represent potential employers and graduate institutions.
