Event Format

CareerMD Career Fairs provide employers with an opportunity to meet job-seeking residents and fellows in a comfortable, relaxed setting. Upon arriving at the event for set-up, each exhibitor will be assigned to a table. CareerMD provides signage for each table that displays the exhibitor’s name, along with the specialties and states for which the exhibitor is recruiting. Residents and fellows may then walk through the event and stop at exhibitor tables to meet employers of interest.

Event Preparation

Extensive information about each exhibitor is distributed to residents and fellows in advance of the Career Fair. Once you register for an event, it is important that you then log in to CareerMD to post your current vacancies (to do so, log in and click the Post/Edit Jobs link). You may also wish to update your Employer Profile, to provide residents and fellows with additional information about your organization such as details regarding the communities in which you operate and the philosophy and history of your organization.
