AAS Career Center

Career Center Details

The AAS hosts a Career Center at each winter AAS meeting. Usually housed in the Exhibit Hall, the Career Center has resources and services for job seekers and hiring managers alike. The AAS collects CVs and makes them available to recruiters; posts job announcements; facilitates matchmaking between job seekers and hiring managers; and hosts "office space" (i.e., tables and chairs in a secluded meeting room) for on-the-spot interviews.
