This year we’re adding new ways for you to connect with other attendees during the lunch break.
For those who are interested, we will hold an informal career fair plus semi-structured birds-of-a-feather discussion groups where you can meet other attendees with interests similar to your own. (If you’d just like to chill out with your friends, please sit anywhere in the open areas on floors 10 – mainly Commons A, B and C, or anywhere in the first floor hallways outside Mann and Sampson.) Learn more:
Join us on the staircase between the 10th and 11th floors at 12:20 pm.
For the first time, we will hold an informal career fair, included in your registration fee. Anyone may participate!
- By 12:20: Hiring managers should queue up at the base of the stairs
- 12:20: Hiring managers/recruiters briefly announce their companies and the jobs they are hiring for.
- Following the intros: Hiring managers will be stationed along the perimeter of the the 11th floor. Prospective applicants can speak to each of the reps
- Career fair ends: 1:05 pm.
If you’d like to list your job on a more permanent basis, check out the Boston Product Management Association Career center to learn how you can post jobs.
