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.

Unidata will be at table C-8 at the Career Fair, which runs from 5:30 - 7:30pm Saturday, January 5 and 6:30 - 8:30pm Sunday, January 6 in Exhibit Hall 5.
